We are launching a Scholarship Campaign and would love your assistance!

The Naa Amerley Palm Education (NAPE) Foundation is a registered, non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Portland, Oregon. NAPE Foundation supports Palm Institute, a private, not-for-profit liberal arts college based in the Greater Accra region of Ghana. NAPE Foundation is run by a board and advisers from the business community and the academe in the United States and Ghana.  NAPE Foundation has been awarding scholarships to Ghanaian students at high school and university levels since 2006.

The mission of Palm Institute is to educate ethical and excellent leaders in Africa. Palm Institute will commence the BSc. in Business Information Technology four-year degree program in January 2021. The program was carefully and strategically designed to address the cumulative needs of local and international organizations.

On a yearly basis, enrollment of students into institutions of higher learning in Ghana and throughout Africa becomes a daunting experience for students and their parents. More often than not, higher education is seen as a luxury only for the privileged few in society. Palm Institute dedicates its efforts and resources to reach out to the less privileged in Ghana and Africa, more of whom reside in the rural areas to equip and strategically position them to compete in today’s competitive world. Currently more than 70% of Palm Institute students receive scholarships. We hope to continue to support the future generations for many years to come.

  1. Do you have a special connection with NAPE Foundation, Ghana or Africa?
  2. Are you willing to dedicate a minimum of 10 hours per week?
  3. Do you have knowledge of Microsoft Office Applications?
  4. Do you feel comfortable calling current donors and cold calling prospective donors?
  5. Would you be willing to research grant opportunities for NAPE Foundation?
  6. Grant writing experience would be an added bonus!
  7. You would work closely with the President of Palm Institute and members of the Board of Trustees of NAPE Foundation.
