The Asantehene requested scholarships for Ghanaian students while he was a special guest at the renowned Memphis in May Festival the previous year.

The Asantehene later called for its expansion to include additional Ghanaian students, despite the fact that the initial target was limited to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) students in Kumasi.

The Ghana Scholarships Secretariat and the University of Memphis have signed a memorandum of understanding that will enable Ghanaian students to complete their undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees at the university.

Fed Ex, Autozone, Sedgwick Jone Incorporated, International Paper, Baptist Memorial Healthcare, First Horizon National Incorporated (NYSE: FHN) and Mueller Industries, are just a few of the world-renowned businesses that call Memphis home.

As a result, these businesses will provide crucial internship programs for Ghanaian students, bridging the gap between academia and industry. According to sources, these businesses and the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat have begun discussions.

Students from Ghana would soon be able to begin their education in Memphis. However, applicants would be invited to apply, and those who will be selected, would begin their studies at Memphis University in September 2023.

The Asantehene Otumfuor Osei Tutu II has consistently exhibited how he esteems education in Ghana, thus this agreement led by him is no exemption.
