One of Liberia’s premier Information Technology (IT) universities, BlueCrest University, has launched a scholarship program for undergraduate Liberian Students (2020 and 2021 high school graduates) valued over US$130K.

Titled the “Let’s Make Liberia Great (LMLG) Scholarship,” the scholarship is intended to support students interested in pursuing BSC in IT and the BBA as a “heartful mandate for supporting the Pro-Poor Agenda of the Liberian government.”

“Students interested should have successfully passed their 12th grade (WAEC or equivalent international boards) of 2020 and 2021. This scholarship can be availed by a student during the course of his/her four years of academic tenure at BlueCrest Liberia.”

Following the close of application, an evaluation test will be conducted on January 22, with the top 30 students securing the scholarship.

“Students who are interested to avail this opportunity have to formally register, on or before January 20th 2022 at BlueCrest Liberia campus opposite the CDC headquarters, at Congo Town, Monrovia or contact / +231-888999444/+231-770495967.”

Dr Umesh Neelakantan, President of the University, reaffirmed BlueCrest’s higher education interventions as transparent and progressive. He also confirmed that BlueCrest has set a vision for making Liberia as the Educational hub of Africa. 

He opined that greater strategic interventions are necessary for making higher education productive and effective. 

“It is viewed that the students of Liberia, without having to depend on other countries for pursuing higher level programs like Masters after completing their respective undergraduate programs, have to be provided the necessary status of learning,” Dr. Neelakantan said.

He also pushed forward his thought for having an established program for entrepreneurial talent in budding youngsters. 

“This will be possible only if there are interesting permutations and combinations of skilled learning for budding youngsters to explore. Inclusive Growth will be a progressive and positive status in this regard. He also referred to the positive and good work taken forward by the Ministry of Education and the National Commission on Higher Education in making higher education impactful and strategic,” he added.  

LMLG is a formal mission recognized for BlueCrest Liberia and the mission is to evolve great stakeholders through higher education for the Republic of Liberia. 

Approved for offering unique higher education programs in Liberia since 2014, the University initiated the LMLG program with a vision for addressing a national genuine problem of higher education in Liberia.

Abhishek Tiwari, Head of Marketing at the University, said the LMLG awareness and campaign will reach each door step, without fail. He also conveyed that BlueCrest Liberia has set out a long and phased out plan, for exploring and identifying unique rural talents, innovations and interventions.
