Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Marylyn Oduro Awuah. A third year Petrochemical Engineering student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana. I am a proud beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship.
Upon gaining university admission I was filled with extreme joy knowing I was on the pathway to gaining education and skills but was deeply saddened and scared about the fact that my parents would not able to see me through my tertiary education due to financial difficulty.
Fortunately for me I was selected by Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship the same year I gained admission to study and I am forever grateful for that. Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that seeks to recognize, support and empower gifted young people from needy families by providing them with full scholarships for their university education. I have received numerous support and benefits from this scholarship since I joined and have been positively impacted in my academics, leadership skills, family life, social life, among others.

It has been my passion to do Engineering and one of my goals is to help create an enabling environment through science and technology growth and advancement. I opted for Petrochemical Engineering because our fast-growing global world required variety of petrochemical products for a better and more comfortable environment. Some of such products include plastics, pharmaceutical products and medicine, paints and coatings, rubbers, synthetic fibers, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), fertilizers and pesticides, detergents, dyes, clothing, cosmetics, liquified petroleum gas (LPG) and other petroleum derived products which are of great importance to our wellbeing and comfort.

It is a blessing to be with Educational Pathways International (EPI) because they do not only provide financial support but go the extra mile of offering advice, counsel, guidance, motivation and training through meetings/seminars organized to equip all beneficiaries, thus shaping us for academic excellence and helping us achieve our career goals as well and preparing us for the corporate world after school.

I believe with grace, hard work, determination and the support from EPI, I will be able to succeed in my academics and become a successful and responsible citizen to help the less privilege in the society and contribute towards national development.

My sincere and heartfelt appreciation and gratitude goes to the executive body of EPI and the supporting bodies of this organization, who seeks to unearth the potential in brilliant and needy students. Also, I would like to appeal to able bodies and individuals to support this nonprofit organization so that more students who find themselves in financial challenges but with great intelligence and potential can also receive the help and support too.
Thank you Educational Pathways International (EPI).

Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is with enormous delight that I write this review about a scholarship I consider to be a blessing to the lives of many needy and brilliant Ghanaian university students. I am Marylyn Awuah Oduro, a second year Petrochemical Engineering student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). I was fortunate to join this wonderful family, Educational Pathways International (EPI), the same year I gained admission to pursue this programme after successfully passing through the laid down selection process.

It had always been my dream to be an Engineer. However being aware of the financial challenges facing my parents, I feared it might be of a hindrance to my academic and career goals. l am aware of the massive financial and psychological support I needed to achieve my goals thus I have always sought for the opportunity to be a scholar to further my studies to higher height. Fortunately, Ghana have realized the numerous benefits of science and technology thus have embraced engineering.

It took a scholarship to see me through my senior high education. Due to financial issues, I had to stay home for a year after graduation. However, I applied and gained admission to the university the following year by the help of contributions and loans from family and friends. The joyful news of being given the opportunity to pursue Petrochemical Engineering at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was indeed an unforgettable one. Thanks to the advertisement on the KNUST website, I got to know of Educational Pathways International (EPI) and what they stand for.

A nonprofit, non-governmental organization that seeks to recognize, support and empower gifted young people from needy families by providing them with full scholarships for their university education. In addition to this, frequent meetings/seminars are organized by EPI so as to equip beneficiaries with new ideas and skills to compliment what we acquire in the classroom.

Considering my experience with EPI, I can boldly testify that it is a great family one is blessed to be a part of. This is because they do not only provide financial support but go the extra mile of offering advice, counsel, guidance, motivation and training, thus shaping us for academic excellence and helping us achieve our career goals as well and preparing us for the corporate world after school.

I believe with grace, hard work, determination and the support from EPI, I will be able to succeed in my academics and become a successful and responsible citizen to help the less privilege in the society and contribute towards national development.



My sincere and heartfelt appreciation and gratitude goes to the executive body of EPI, the supporting bodies of this organization, who seeks to unearth the potential in brilliant and needy students.

It is my prayer that the Almighty God bless them and make them progress in their good works. I therefore encourage other able bodies to do same for the progress our dear nation. Thank you EPI.
