YESLiberia Announces Recruitment of New Scholarship Recipients


Monrovia – The Youth Empowerment Services, Inc. (YESLiberia) has recruited 27 underprivileged students to enroll in its scholarship program beginning second semester of academic year 2020-2021. The students come from several communities across Monrovia and will join a list of at least 300 students who have benefitted from YESLiberia scholarship program in the last seven years.

YESLiberia is a United States based not-for-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) status. Since the year 2013, YESLiberia has consistently sponsored under privileged and bright students at schools in underserved communities such as GSA Road and Nickley Town in Montserrado County, Unification Town and Kakata in Margibi County and Ganta in Nimba County.

Several students in the past years have benefited from YESLiberia scholarship program which covers registration and tuition fees. YESLiberia is proud that some of these students are today studying at the University of Liberia and other tertiary institutions in Liberia.

The scholarship program works through local Liberian volunteers to identify and recruit needy yet deserving and talented students for scholarship placement. For the most part, these students are sponsored to enroll in schools of their choice and are poised to remain on the scholarship so long as they maintain a minimum grade point average as required by YESLiberia.

The scholarship program is sponsored by donors residing in the United States, and it is part of YESLiberia’s programs designed to develop the minds and improve literacy levels of young Liberian citizens. Of particular importance is the program’s overarching objective of preparing Liberian youth for leadership and service to their communities. We thank our many donors who continue to contribute to the work of supporting the education of Liberian children.

The list of students recruited for the YESLiberia Scholarship beginning this academic year is as follows:
