We’ve been investigating Scholarship Secretariat since July 2023 – OSP

Since July 2023, the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat has been the subject of an investigation, as disclosed by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).

The Scholarship Secretariat has been under public attention due to recent reports, especially after an exposé published in the Fourth Estate.

The study has shown cases in which scholarships were given to candidates from wealthy backgrounds, defying the Secretariat’s purpose to assist academically gifted but financially disadvantaged children.

The Office of the Special Prosecutor has been asked by the Minority in Parliament to investigate the scholarship secretariat’s operations in light of these disclosures.
