Private universities in Ghana also deserve to benefot from the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), President of the Garden City University College (GCUC) in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi, Prof. Emeritus Anthony Apeke Adimado, has said.
Speaking at the 15th congregation of the University College, Prof. Adimado said: “It is our fervent prayer that private universities in Ghana would also be beneficiaries of GETFund”.
Also, he appealed to corporate bodies and individuals for assistance through the “donation of books and other learning materials, sponsorship of students for degree programmes in the university” and “partnerships of individuals, corporate bodies and organisations in various areas”, which he said “will also be needed.”
Currently, only public educational institutions benefit from the GETFund – a public trust set up by an Act of Parliament in the year 2000.
Its core mandate is to provide funding to supplement government effort for the provision of educational infrastructure and facilities within the public sector from the pre-tertiary to the tertiary level.
