The Brew-Butler Family today launched a research fund to assist graduate students of the University of Cape Coast as they embark on scholarly research.
 The Samuel and Emelia Brew-Butler GRASAG Research Fund was birthed from the need for quality research especially in a country like Ghana where the necessity for a paradigm shift in policy direction and development drive cannot be over emphasized.

Many tertiary institutions in Ghana have been seeking in vain the requisite financing and support to enhance quality research work which sets institutions of higher learning like universities apart from others.
The more a university comes out with excellent and useful research, the more it impacts on the country and the world at large.

That notwithstanding, conducting graduate research in Ghana has become a daunting task for the researcher who is often times a student with limited financial resources.

More often than not, the lack of funds either stalls research or forces the student researcher to choose easier topics that are of little relevance to society.

In this light, the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Cape Coast has been considering ways to create a support system to help ease the financial burden on graduate research.

Its chapter of the Graduate Students Association of Ghana- UCC-GRASAG, took the bull by the horn and set up a fund to alleviate the plight of its members. The executives named the fund after Nana Sam Brew-Butler, the Chairman of the University?s council for his immense contributions to the university.

Nana Sam Brew-Butler on the other had  thought of setting up a similar fund in honour of his late wife, Mrs. Emelia Brew-Butler who passed on to glory on 4th July, 2013.

Nana proposed that the fund be rather named after him and his wife as Emelia was more into research as well as a product of the University of Cape Coast, Hence, The Samuel and Emelia Brew-Butler GRASAG-UCC Research Fund.

The fund can only be accessed by graduates of UCC whose research work have elements of innovation and invention.
