He said with the latest addition, the total number of participating state government-owned tertiary institutions had been increased from the initial 36 to 48.

Mr Ayitogo urged all institutions yet to submit their students’ data to the Student Verification Portal (SVS) of the fund to do so to enable their students benefit from the scheme.

He advised states whose data had been captured and successfully uploaded to urgently sensitise their students to apply.
