The Liberian Education Trust (LET) and IBI International yesterday awarded three young women a two-year scholarship grant to the University of Liberia and Cuttington University.
The three female students are majoring in accounting or economics and if they maintain a grade point average of 3.00 or above the women would maintain the scholarship until graduation.
Speaking yesterday when the three young women were receiving their individual checks to attend selected colleges, the Board Chairperson for LET; Maureen Shaw challenged the young women to maintain their grade point average.
Ms. Shaw continued that after their graduation, they will be provided job placements and will automatically be candidates for employment by IBI International.
A representative for IBI International Mohamed Jawara during the check presentation said that they want to deal with some 14 girls to also be awarded scholarships and. He added that the program would run up to 2016 and also challenged the young women to study hard to continue with the program.
Watta Brown who was awarded a scholarship to attend Cuttington University, speaking on behalf of the awardees assured IBI International and LET that they would make sure that they study furtively.
She said further that a thousand-step starts with just one and because of IBI and LET that first step has been made facile.
IBI International and LET also awarded the three scholars with personal laptops each to help the young women study harder and better.
