SHS scholarships in Ghana for brilliant but needy students. eSyllabus has established scholarships with key regional schools, such as Mawuli Senior High in the Volta region and Edinaman Senior High in the Cape Coast area. The current scholarships were given to needy but brilliant students at those schools. In 2013, eSyllabus plans expanded scholarship programs. Currently 42 students in Ghana are on scholarship. These scholarships were for full room and board at prestigious public schools in Ghana, an opportunity that would otherwise be unavailable to such students. Standardized exam results (BECE exams) were the initial basis of selection for the scholarships, with an indepenedent selection committee analying various factors such as essays and family situation.

- After School Programs. eSyllabus has been running after school programs for several years in Ghana with strong academic results. These programs incorporate both elearning as well as additional tutoring, and the results have been tremendous. Programs in urban areas such as Tamale, Kumasi, Teshi-Nungua and Takoradi have been successful, as have programs in rural areas such as Battor Kope, Adaklu and Kpetoe.
eSyllabus for Africa is a US based 501c3 that is dedicated to assisting schools in African nations with 1) digital libraries for elearning programs,
