Following a rigorous and robust selection process, a not-for-profit organisation i-Scholar Initiative (iSI) has announced 70 young Nigerians for its 2023 scholarship awards.
The list of the winners was unveiled in a presentation by the organisation’s Vice President Operations, Mrs. Hanatu Banjoko during the Organisation’s Management Committee (MC) meeting.
The list has also been approved by the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the organisation.
The organisation’s BoT Chairperson Mrs. Tolu Ewherido said: “I congratulate all our stakeholders, the BoT, the MC and most importantly, our esteemed partners for another successful application season.”
“Congratulations also to the new scholars and their families. i-Scholar is proud to support them to pursue their dreams and showcase their amazing talents to the world.”
The awards offered by the Initiative will pay for standardized tests such as the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
Scores from the two tests are required by top universities in North America and Europe. The scholarship also covers a predetermined number of graduate school application fees and most importantly, an end-to-end mentoring program.
President of the organisation, Mr. Victor Ogunmola said: “This is the 5th edition of our scholarship offerings. We continue to scale up the number of awards we offer each year but we are no where near we want to be.
