Top Achievers Scholarship Program focuses on students with outstanding academic performance to pursue careers that are of strategic importance in terms of driving the economic diversification agenda of Botswana. The fields of study for the scholarship include Finance, Business, Engineering, Medical, Health, ICT and Science. The focus will be on undergraduate level but over time the scholarship will cover post graduate training in key areas. This initiative is aimed at motivating young people to excel in their studies, gain recognition, learn at the best environments to realize their potential, and create a pool of exceptional leaders for the country over time. Affording young, talented students the opportunity to be exposed to rigorous curriculum focused on development, macro-economics, political theory and social entrepreneurship furthers the growth of Botswana’s citizens for generations.
