Last week Friday, the Namibian College of Open Learning (Namcol) granted young people, including inmates of the Windhoek Correctional Facility, scholarships to study at the institution.

The scholarship covers tuition, examination fees for up to three subjects, study materials, tutor-marked assignments with feedback, SMS services, radio and video lessons and the Notes Master, an interactive Namcol platform that supplements materials. The scholarships are allocated through the regional councils.

“Part of our social corporate responsibility programme is the offering of scholarships for needy learners. This strategy addresses increased access to our programmes for secondary education and is awarded on a one year basis,” says Jan Nitschke, acting director of Namcol.

“This time, we give to you to make a positive impact on your life. Use the opportunity to place yourself in a position to give one.

“Namcol is one of the few state-owned institutions, and perhaps the only public institution in the education arena, with representation in all political regions of Namibia,” says Rachel Jacob, chairperson of the Khomas Regional Council.

“I would like to encourage you to work hard this year. You are the only ones who can make the conscious decision to achieve your dreams.”
