The Beyond Wealth initiative founded by Dr. Simisola Alabi recognises the importance of wealth consciousness, wealth planning and philanthropy by bringing together the best minds to share ideas and leverage their network to build their wealth.
The objective is also to give back and create an easier path for the next generation. The initiative has a scholarship programme that provides support for entry into selected universities for black students with the 2nd round of applications opening in November 2020; five slots are available per year for scholarship. The process is rigorous consisting of a round of short listing and panel interviews. The maiden edition had one successful applicant, Godswill Okundaye.
The scholarship is an opportunity for the brightest and most promising young people from black backgrounds in the UK to attend leading universities and study in a field of their choice. The applicants must be of black origin and must be in school years 11 or 12. They must also demonstrate a track record of hard work and dedication in their academics. Successful applicants are provided with relevant work experience, personal statement review and interview practice.
