“The SRC also wishes to inform all students that all JCRCs, as well as GRASAG, have contributed substantial amounts of their income to form part of the source of funds for the scholarship scheme, hence the need for all students to take advantage of this opportunity.”
“The SRC shall assist students with the application of this scholarship in all necessary ways once applications are opened. Students’ interest before any other considerations.” the Council noted.
The SRC wished all final year students who have completed their final examination and those with pending papers the best of luck as they sit for their exams.
