Graduate Students Association cautions government about postgraduate research funding


The newly elected national executives of the Graduate Students Association of Ghana (GRASAG-NATIONAL) led by the President-Elect Samuel Ekow Sagoe has cautioned government to do more in order to pay much attention to postgraduate studies and research.

He said postgraduate studies have increasingly become too expensive to bear in Ghana by the ordinary students therefore it’s accounts for the exodus to abroad by many of our youths for further studies.

“we have students in Ghana who are paying GH¢16,000-¢20,000 a year just to acquire postgraduate studies. This is very harsh and unbearable to the ordinary postgraduate students. As a nation if we dedicate special funds to postgraduate studies and quality research work it will have multifaceted benefits on our economy”.
