The Inter-School Reading Quiz (ISRQ) scholarship is a national literacy initiative designed and implemented by Perbi Cubs in partnership with UNESCO and supported by the Mastercard Foundation and MEST. It is a scholarship programme to boost literacy through reading among Ghana’s school children. Through this significant scholarship, we hope to build on the success of ISRQ 2024 and include even more schools from outside the Greater Accra region in ISRQ 2025. Together with our partners, we are excited to announce some amount of scholarship to some schools based on the Eligibility Criteria below.
