Following a rigorous and robust selection process, the i-Scholar Initiative (iSI) has announced the names of seventy (70) young Nigerians of its 2023 scholarship awards.
In a statement, the Executive Secretary of the organization, Dr Olufemi Fajolu explained that the list of winners was unveiled in a presentation made by the organization’s Vice President Operations, Mrs. Hanatu Banjoko during the Organization’s Management Committee (MC) meeting.
The list has also been approved by the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the organization.
“I congratulate all our stakeholders, the BoT, the MC and most importantly, our esteemed partners for another successful application season” says Mrs. Tolu Ewherido, i-Scholar Initiative (iSI)’s BoT Chairperson.
“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.”, Ewherido continued.
The awards offered by i-Scholar Initiative (iSI) 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.
“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.
“However, we are very grateful to all our funding partners for the tremendous progress that we have made over the last four years.” Says Mr. Victor Ogunmola, the President of i-Scholar Initiative (iSI).
The new awardees will soon be receiving invitations to join i-Scholar Initiative (iSI)’s platforms, and they will be onboarded into the organization during an official event that will take place in June.
