    1. Hi Bright. With the limited resources right now, we decided to prioritize students who wrote in the 2 regions where there is an ongoing crisis. As the scholarship progresses and we receive more support from donors, we will definitely expand the award to other regions. Thank you

  5. Nice one.May God bless you guys for putting similes on the faces of less privileged but hardworking students..

  6. Wow this is something good but why does it not include those who wrote in the French regions as IDPs and in private schools? There are people who could not remain in the English speaking regions who left and registered in the French speaking regions and performed well. What can be done to such students? I think this wonderful opportunity should be opened to everyone.

    1. Hi Waultas. You made a good point. But due to limited resources for now, we will be awarding the scholarship to outstanding students who wrote in the 2 English speaking regions. You can agree with me that a student writing in a crisis region faced more difficulties than a student writing in a peaceful region. Similarly, a student who can afford a private school education is better off than one who went to a government school (in terms of finances). So due to shortage of funds, we decided to prioritize these categories of students. Rest assured that in the coming years when we get more donations, we will expand to other groups of people.

      1. OK sir. Thank you all the same, great job. Please notify us if there is any opportunity opened to anyone as far as the performance in this year’s GCE is concerned.

        Thanks

  7. Thank you for your aid, but I have worry being that there are other needy students who passed but don’t have the 21 points,is there no other means of helping those ones?I have only 10 points

    1. Hi Kum. Due to limited resources for now, we will be awarding the scholarship to outstanding students. In the coming years when we get more donations, we will expand to other groups of people.

  8. Thanks so much for the opportunity you are giving students to further their studies at the university…

      1. Greetings sir/Madame, please I have sent my required qualifications to your email but I’ve no respond……..

  9. Hi greetings. I’m very happy for this initiative and pray for more supporters. But please why is it only limited to North West and south west regions, what about those of us that are IDPs. Then we’ve missed the opportunity just because we left the regions, please someone help
