Tuition and fees toward Higher Diploma in Information Systems
Rachel of Lusaka, Zambia plans on pursuing her Higher Diploma in Information Systems with the Institute for the Management of Information Systems (IMIS) through a local college in Zambia. She has completed two of the six modules required to complete the course and she will use the funding to help pay for tuition, membership fees, exam fees, transportation, and books. As part of her studies, she plans to develop a web-based system for entry and payment of Grade 12 exams. This project will be her Business Information Systems Project and will showcase the knowledge she has learned thus far. Rachel’s passion to advance herself in the field of Information Systems will help others understand that it is achievable and that they too can contribute to Zambia’s development and computer education.
