The NUGS SCHOLARSHIP is thus established with the goal of providing equal educational opportunities and a secure environment free of financial stress and emotions to brilliant/promising but needy Ghanaian students. Financial assistance is provided in the form of a full scholarship, a partial scholarship, housing, fee arrangements, and on-campus work-study or part-time job opportunities for students.


We aim to be a world-class leader in student financial aid, with high-quality and innovative service that includes effective use of technology to streamline application processing and communication with students and other stakeholders.


NUGS strives to be responsible stewards of all available international and local support funds, with a particular emphasis on making university education accessible to young Ghanaians by removing financial barriers and creating a supportive and friendly learning environment for needy-but-brilliant students.
