A scholarship is usually a monetary award based on criteria given by the awarding party. It can be given on basis of academic
merit, athletic ability, financial needs or other criteria specific to the group giving the award. For example, there are many
scholarships available for only a specific minority including African Americans minority groups and women. Sometimes college
scholarships are given in a contest manner.

Cameroon G.C.E. Board June 2011 Results on the Internet

Despite increasing calls from students and parents across the country and the Diaspora, Cameroon G.C.E. Board is still reluctant to publish GCE results on the Internet. The widely held view that theCameroon General Certificate of Education, GCE, Board, published the 2007 results on the Internet has been refuted by The Deputy Registrar of the Board, Mathew Akoko. Speaking to the press in Bamenda after a meeting with GCE Superintendents and Chiefs of Centre, Akoko said the act was committed by some young men in Molyko who later apologised in writing, promising never to repeat it. 
Akoko was defending the Board against accusations of bad faith from publishers of local newspapers who bought the soft copies of the GCE Ordinary and Advanced Levels from the Board and suffered severe loss because most of the candidates read their results on the Internet.
"We explained this to the publishers. We will ensure that this does not repeat itself," he assured the press. The Registrar said he was in Bamenda to sensitise invigilators, Superintendents and Chiefs of Centres on the necessity to conduct the exams with fairness to ensure that all candidates write under the same conditions. The Deputy Registrar said if his institution wanted to publish the results on the Internet, it would have used its own website. Akoko blamed the men for revealing the results online because it could help ill-intended individuals to tamper with them.
The Board said in future it would incorporate a copy of the student's photograph in the examination certificate. This would ensure security of examinations and stop the sale of stolen certificates.
He also described as false information that journalists were barred from GCE marking centres. Journalists, he said, are free to visit the marking centres but they can't be allowed into the examination rooms because they would distract candidates. 
"They are free to meet the authorities in charge and ask questions on the conduct of the exams," he said.
