Speaking at the launch, the MP stated that β€œIn the Yendi Constituency, many students face a lot of financial challenges so I am making it a core mandate to ensure that every student gets easy access to tertiary education regardless of his or her financial status.

It is, for this reason, I will mobilize funds every year to support qualified students,” Alhaji Farouk Mahama explained.

He also emphasized that the scholarship scheme is for needy students with progressive academic performance with special focus on Science, Technology, and Mathematics (STEM) courses.”

Nevertheless, beneficiaries of the scheme must be a constituent of Yendi and a regular student.

Again all applicants must also have distinct academic records with at least 3.2 CGPA for continuing students and at least an aggregate of 15 for fresh students.
