I was selected and awarded the scholarship on the topic ‘ Assessment of Ground water quality. A case study in the la Nkwantanang Madina Municipal’ to aid my project. As a beneficiary, the money awarded has aided with the cost of my project from transportation to the field, lab expenses, and purchasing data( airtime) to facilitate the research work.

I'm thankful for the award I was given by Waimm. It was supposed to be used for my project but unfortunately, I was not done paying my fees so I used it to settle some parts hence I'm very grateful for the help.

It is a great honour to be a beneficiary of the maiden WAIMM Scholarship 2020. It has afforded me incentives to pursue and advance my interest in the application of Artificial Intelligence in the mining and petroleum industry. This milestone could not have been possible without the generous support from the WAIMM scholarship secretariat.

- Ernest Boakye Danquah, Chemical Engineering - KNUST, Ghana

I really appreciate the WAIMM scholarship because it has helped me get one step closer to my future success. Overall, my project experience has been so amazing and life-changing and you are part of the reasons I am here today.
