Ethiopia’s first Equity and Merit Scholars graduate from Manchester University
The very first batch of students from Ethiopia to be awarded Manchester University’s Equity and Merit Scholarships have graduated.
- Aida Bayissa (MSc International Development)
- Binyam Andargie (MSc International Fashion Marketing)
- Brook Makonnen (MSc Environmental Governance)
- Ruth Bezu (MSc International Development: Poverty, Inequality and Development) and
- Yacob Tsegaye (MSc Communications and Signal Processing)
The Equity and Merit Scholarships are for academically excellent students who have the potential to make a significant contribution to sustainable development in their home countries.
Now in its eleventh year, the Equity and Merit Scholarship has been awarded to nearly 300 students from Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania, with Ethiopia being the latest country to benefit.
Joanne Jacobs, from the University’s International Office, who oversees the Equity and Merit Scholarships, said: “Having the full cohort of Equity and Merit scholarships from Ethiopia attend our Winter Graduation is a really special occasion.
“Graduations are always a time of celebration and our Equity and Merit scholars really do change lives but that’s only because of the calibre of the recipients and the amount of hard work and effort they put in. That’s why it was such an honour to welcome them back.”
