In the heart of Bolgatanga, in the Upper East Region of Ghana, a promising young mind, Abande Prince Abugri, finds himself at a crossroads in his educational journey. Prince, a former contestant in the prestigious National Science and Math Quiz (NSMQ), is grappling with a critical decision that financial limitations have thrust upon him.

Hailing from Navrongo Senior High School (NAVASCO), Prince showcased his intellectual prowess as a member of the NAVASCO team in the 2023 NSMQ, advancing to the one-eighth stage of the competition. His achievements extended beyond the quiz arena, earning him recognition as the overall best science student during the school’s speech and prize-giving day.

Prince’s commitment to scientific excellence was further acknowledged with the Best Problem-Based Learning Student award, a testament to his innovative approach in using scientific concepts to address environmental challenges. His academic journey reached its pinnacle when he emerged from the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) with flying colors – securing 6As and 2Bs.

However, despite his remarkable academic achievements, Prince now faces a formidable obstacle. Financial constraints threaten to confine him to the confines of his home, halting his educational aspirations. The opportunity to pursue a degree in Engineering Sciences at the prestigious University of Ghana, Legon (UG), beckons Prince, but a pressing financial burden looms overhead.

Prince’s admission letter, dated February 8, 2024, serves as a bittersweet reminder of his achievement and the challenges that accompany it. To secure his position as a student at UG, he must register promptly, but an admission fee of GH¢3,142 stands as a formidable barrier. The ticking clock adds urgency to his situation, as Thursday, February 8, 2024, marks the deadline for registration.

As Prince contemplates his future, the story of this 19-year-old stands as a poignant reminder of the financial hurdles that talented and deserving students often face. It highlights the need for a collective effort to support promising individuals like Prince, ensuring that financial limitations do not obstruct the path to higher education and a brighter future.
