GETFund should be proactive

Speaking to on the issue, an educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi, remarked that the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) which was primarily set up to offer support to brilliant but needy students, had diverted from its mission.

It is because of such needy students that the GETFUND secretariat was originally established in the year 2000 to, among other things, support brilliant but needy students in school.
According to the GETFund’s Annual Reports from 2012 to 2018, the secretariat spent GHS425,698,937 on scholarships on 3,112 beneficiaries out of which 2,217 persons were unlawfully granted scholarships to study abroad.

Going forward, Mr Fenyi urged the GETFund to concentrate efforts on ensuring that genuinely needy but brilliant students are given prominence when it comes to awarding scholarships.
