Scholarship Extensions!


April-June 2012

As indicated in the last quarterly report, we have a total of 70 GlobalGiving scholarship beneficiaries. There were no new recruits during this reporting period as the school year is coming to a close; however, a one-month scholarship extension was given for ten girls whose accounts ran out of money before they were able to take their exams and complete their school year. Additional students will be recruited at the beginning of the Ethiopian school year and be provided with 24-month scholarships dependent on funding levels.

The names of the students who received the scholarship extension are Beletu Dangachew, Abebu Taffa, Woinshet Zewdi, Fikirtemariam Chefikee, Zeritu Haile, Haregewoin Abera, Seblewongel Tariku, Filagot  Bogale, Yenenesh Gashaw, and Fikirte Tenne.
