I was given a knust less endowed admission and I was told to apply for mastercard foundation scholarship.I did it before june and posted it,up till today they didn’t even call me for anything concerning it.But so of my mates that I applied with have gone for an interview about it.I wasted all my time trying to learn when I was in ShS.I was told even if my family don’t have money I should keep learning.but now I think there was no good thing from the less endowed admission I had.
