The Chanrai Family Global Scholarship

As part of the Africa Global Initiative, the Chanrai Family and Northeastern University have instituted the Chanrai Family Graduate Scholarship for academically outstanding and financially needy students from Ghana. The scholarship covers the tuition and living expenses for University of Ghana graduates who have been admitted into a graduate program at Northeastern University.

Who is eligible?

As the continent of Africa grows its capabilities in business and manufacturing, propelling vital sectors like engineering, health, education, sustainability, and environmental sciences, college graduates with real-world experience are a necessary component to moving its countries and citizens forward. Northeastern boasts one of the most competitive and rigorous academic programs in the U.S.

Our experiential approach to education provides graduates with the skills necessary to solve problems and innovate.

The Chanrai Family Graduate Scholarship Fund will cover full tuition, living expenses, and required books for the entire duration of a two-year program, provided the student remains in good academic standing.

What is the application process for the scholarship?

Students who are interested in this scholarship must write an essay of about 800 words outlining their educational goals, the impact that a Northeastern education will have on their lives, and why they should be awarded the scholarship. They should include their academic qualifications and extracurricular activities, especially those undertaken to positively affect the society they live in.

These essays will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee at the University of Ghana, and shortlisted candidates will be recommended to Northeastern University for final consideration. These candidates must then apply to one of the eligible graduate programs at Northeastern.

If admitted, the chosen students will receive the Chanrai Family Graduate Scholarship offer letter from Northeastern University.
