BlueCrest College is determined to provide support to the students who need and deserve financial aids. That’s why every year at BlueCrest we award several scholarships to the students. All scholarships are awarded as a percentage reduction in the total fee as mentioned below. As BlueCrest student, there is a possibility that you can be awarded scholarships to get high-quality learning, a hallmark of the BlueCrest, and you can complete a program by paying a fraction of the total fee or almost no fee.
Scholarships for New Students
– Category A
All the scholarships are applicable only for the Degree programs for the students joining from SP 2021. The scholarship recipients have to maintain required CGPA and conditions as per the policy of continuation of scholarships as mentioned in the terms section.
STRATEGIC/SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE SCHOLARSHIPS
i. WOMEN IN IT SCHOLARSHIP
We found the need to increase the number of women with expertise in Information Technology in the region. This lead to the launching of this scholarship package which offers a 40% reduction in the total first-year fees of all women admitted for the Bachelor Degree program (BSc. Information Technology), and a 20% discount for all women admitted to our Master’s in Information Technology (MSc. IT) program.
ii. NEED-BASED SCHOLARSHIP
A need-based scholarship is for students from financially weak families and communities. The range of scholarship ranges from 10% to a maximum of 50% of the total first-year fee. A proper set of legal and valid documents have to be submitted by the applicants to the registrar. Management is always free to investigate more about the eligibility of the candidate for the scholarship. Just being a member of a particular community does not automatically qualify a candidate for this scholarship.
The scholarship is based on the grades/marks obtained by the student in the qualifying examinations or tests like WASSCE in SHS etc.
i. NCE-OES SCHOLARSHIPS
Based on the results of the National Competitive Examinations (NCE) conducted by the BlueCrest College in various Schools in the country between February to August every year. Similarly, an online test is also conducted for those who could not appear for NCE in the Schools. It is called Online Entrance Exam Scholarships. (OES). Students can get a 40% to 100% reduction in the total first-year fee based on the results of NCE/OES.
ii. MERIT BASED SCHOLARSHIPS
Based on the SHS results, students can get a 25 to 100% reduction in the total fee of the first year.
iii. PRESIDENTIAL/RECTORAL SCHOLARSHIPS
The scholarship is based on the recommendations from the partnered institutions, government bodies, NGOs or corporate organizations. Besides, BCC management will also identify potential students who have already achieved some success in a field of interest to BCC and offer scholarships to them. It is a 100% reduction in the first year total fee. The recipients have to contribute regularly to the College/Schools as ambassadors by helping BCC in promotions, marketing, branding and similar activities in regular consultation with the assigned staff member of the College to continue receiving the scholarships. Regular reports of such activities may be needed by the management from the recipients and a satisfactory level of contribution is must to continue the scholarship.
Scholarships for Existing Students

These scholarships are applicable for year 2 onwards. All students can apply for these scholarships based on the CGPA obtained in the program every year. A minimum of 3.4 out of 4 CGPA is required to obtain a reduction of 25 to 100% of the total annual fee. Other conditions may also apply like no misconducts, no backlogs, no issues found, and in some cases, interviews are also conducted.
