Two students receive Kwame Danger Excellence Awards
The UPSA Global Alumni Association has presented the Kwame Danger Excellence Awards to two bright female students of the University.
The awardees are Eugenia Akisiba, a level 100 law student, and Mary Abena Sam, a second-year Public Relations student.
The scholarships were presented to the students in recognition of their outstanding academic performance despite facing financial difficulties, which made it difficult for them to pay their fees.
The two were selected after a rigorous selection process that saw a number of students apply for the two scholarship slots.
The Kwame Danger Excellence Awards, instituted by Mr. Daniel Kwame Bediako, a renowned alumnus of UPSA, seek to offer bright young minds from UPSA the opportunity to complete their education while developing the talent of students through mentorship and scholarships.
They are also aimed at recognizing and rewarding students who excel academically, and have shown resilience and perseverance.
Speaking at a brief presentation ceremony, the President of the UPSA Global Alumni Association, Mr. Francis Dadzie, congratulated the scholarship recipients while praising them for their hard work and commitment to their studies.
He also urged alumni of the University to support UPSA’s scholarship drive, which is geared towards enabling more students to gain access to quality education.
In her acceptance speech, Eugenia Akisiba expressed her gratitude to the Global Alumni of UPSA for the award, saying it would motivate her to work harder and achieve more in her academic pursuits.
For her part, Mary Abena Sam urged other students facing financial challenges to stay focused on their studies and never give up on their dreams.
