A final year Purchasing and Supply student of Takoradi Technical University Student, Miss Hildagard M. Musah, has been presented with a new HP Laptop computer for her continued high academic performance. Miss Musah has been on full tuition and hostel scholarship for her degree programme at TTU from the Joseph & Elizabeth Quansah Foundation since 2020 based on her outstanding academic performance.
Presenting the laptop through the Pro VIce Chancellor, Prof. Victor Kweku Bondzie Micah, at a short event at the university, Dr. Elizabeth I. Quansah who is the Co-Founder and Co-President of JEQ Foundation, USA, said it is in recognition of her continued excellence in academic pursuit and maintaining a CGPA of 3.83. Dr. Elizabeth I. Quansah who is a former DBS Accounting Student of TTU expressed the hope the laptop helps her to further excel at TTU and also highlighted the Foundation’s commitment to supporting more needy but brilliant students.
“All the donations we get goes to our students. We give tuition and housing scholarship and those who are extremely good get laptops…We started in 2019 and we have cumulatively paid for 22 students and we have them across several of the tertiary institutions. So we are presenting you this award to excel beyond here so as to make TTU and the foundation proud… so if you’re a college student and you are ready to benefit, you must get at least 3.5 GPA and our second criteria is for you to be poor. If your parents are getting annual income of GHS600 or if you’re a single mother making GHS400, your child can benefit,“, she said.

Speaking on behalf of management, the Registrar of TTU, Moses MaClean Abnory, thanked Joseph & Elizabeth Quansah Foundation for their support of Miss Musah but challenged the foundation to establish a pavilion on TTU campus for more students to benefit from the foundation.
The Dean of Faculty of Business Studies, Prof. Solomon Abekah Keelson on behalf of the faculty thanked the Joseph & Elizabeth Quansah Foundation for assisting students at the faculty but called for a stronger collaboration to support more students.
“we cannot express our heartfelt delight for what has happened. Sometimes we write proposals to foundations and other donors to help us and we hardly get help but you are pushing to help us. So we think it is a great opportunity to collaborate further beyond the girl”, he said.
The beneficiary of the Joseph & Elizabeth Quansah Foundation, Miss Hildagard M. Musah, highlighted how beneficial the foundation’s support has been to her academic life.
“I’m so grateful because I really needed a scholarship to provide for my tuition and housing. The laptop however came in timely considering my project work and attachment report. So I’m grateful to the foundation and TTU management“, he added.
