Dr. Ofori-Brobbey Memorial Scholarship for International Business Students

Scholarship Information:

The Jesse H. Jones School of Business and Brobbey family are pleased to announce the Dr. Ofori-Brobbey Memorial Scholarship opportunity for a deserving international student. The scholarship was established by family and friends in loving memory of Dr. William Kwadwo Ofori-Brobbey, Associate Professor of Management in the JHJ School of Business, to perpetuate the legacy of this unique and far-sighted man. Dr. Ofori-Brobbey epitomized the ultimate 20th Century American immigrant from Africa, for whom education was the golden key – sufficiently luring and worthy of pursuit in a foreign land. A consummate visionary educationalist, he sought educational opportunities not just for self and family, but also for anyone who would entertain his hearing for longer than a few moments. The scholarship award will be distributed to the recipient’s TSU student account for the academic year - $500 in the fall semester and $500 in the spring semester. Students may re-apply.
