Report on the Just Concluded ‘Accessing International Scholarships’ Seminar

This seminar held from the 18th -20th of December 2020. There were three speakers who handled different days and different topics. Sunday Okafor, on the 18th spoke on ‘Accesing Commonwealth and other British Government sponsorships.’ Iseoluwa Akintunde, on the 19th spoke on ‘Accessing Canadian scholarships.’
Tuamuro Odii on the 20th spoke on ‘Accessing Nigerian based scholarships for international studies.’

The seminar was supported by Building Nations Initiative through the provison of her Zoom platform for our use.
The sessions on the 2nd and 3rd day were recorded. These recordings and presentation slides used by the facilitators were sent to participants to consult at their own time. The seminar achieved its purpose which was to educate a number of Nigerian students on different ways and avenues for accessing scholarship for international studies.

Given the feedback from the students, we hope to flag off a paid mentorship programme where students will be coached through the A-Z of graduate applications for international studies and scholarships in chosen schools. Details on this will be communicated shortly.
