JEQ Foundation goes the extra mile to carefully identify intelligent but needy students, not only to make their higher education come true through their scholarship and other assistance programs, but they also mentor their scholars and prepare them for successful professional life. Their funding support which is completely free has changed the trajectory of the lives of recipients, who are only required to be kind and pay it forward in future to support other smart but needy students. This is awesome!!

The JEQ Foundation scholarships to needy but brilliant students in Ghana has been life transforming. Currently the foundation funds students in tertiary educational institutions in Ghana covering tuition, accommodation fees and learning aids like laptops and scientific calculators. This has kept at risk students in school and offered the opportunity for several students who had no hope of pursuing further education after high school a chance to have a bright future. More importantly, the JEQ foundation provides an all round academic and emotional support to beneficiaries through academic advisors from the tertiary institutions where the beneficiary is enrolled. This has doubled the chances of beneficiaries by affording them the needed mentorship to succeed academically and in life. This foundation is serious about making a difference and the early results from their funding and support activities is worthy of praise and support.

All hopes seem lost. Dreams were imitating shatters. The family, in impoverishment, couldn't help but decipher as the once big dream of their son turn into irrevocable crumbles. Though my results were impressive, and excellent, I couldn't gain admission into Medical School. The supportive backbone was financially struck to the core. The kind gesture of one Mrs. Pearl Sam led to the my introduction to the JEQ foundation. I was beaming with contented smiles when I was messaged with an award of a scholarship by the benevolent foundation. And now, courtesy the JEQ foundation, I am now an MBCHB student of the prestigious University of Cape Coast. And I hope to willingly give back to society when I graduate as a doctor.God Bless You JEQ foundation.

There are varied opportunities that come to us from the day we are born till we die.we only become handicap to life if we do not persevere. I grew up in an environment where education isn’t a priority to the natives.I had a hard time schooling since there was no form of motivation apart from been motivated intrinsically and also there was little financial assistance on the side of my parents . I also tried to be independent by working to support my schooling . There was a radical change when the Joseph and Elizabeth Quansah foundation team decided to fund my university education .They catered for both my tuition and accommodation and offered various counseling sections to help me psychologically also.Their zeal to help needed but brilliant students is unseen thus very amazing.A great thanks to foundation for their support and dedication towards helping to make me a better person in the near future.My name is Thomas Benson . A second year student in the University of CapeCoast (Ghana) offering a bachelors degree program in science education with a chemistry major and a biology minor. Am highly grateful to the foundation for their support and to everyone who donated to making my dream a reality

Imagine having the ability to succeed in an academic field, but not having the financial support to enter or complete college. The goal of the Joseph & Elizabeth Quansah (JEQ) Foundation is to reach as many deserving students in Ghana as we can, to help them on their path to higher education and realize their potential.

​Many students in Ghana have the intelligence and resilience to succeed in their studies and become doctors, teachers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and so forth. But their families cannot afford the tuition and are unable to borrow from private lenders or the government.

College & University Cost in Ghana
Application fee - $50 - $50

Tuition - $500-$1,500 per year

Housing - $400-$700 per year

Laptop - $500

While their families in Ghana cannot meet these education costs, many U.S. donors can. Your tax-deductible contributions can help lift these bright young minds and their families out of poverty.
