Foundation Commences Scholarship Program For Niger Delta Undergraduates

The Ojah Scholarship Foundation has launched its portal for indigent undergraduate students in the Niger Delta region to apply for its annual scholarship program.

 Bisi Olabode-Foghi, the Secretary of the Foundation, announced in a statement on Friday in Abuja that the portal will be open until April 30, 2023. 

According to Olabode-Foghi, the applicants must be studying Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields, according to.

“The applicant must have gained admission for the current year (2023 -2024) to a Nigerian public university (state or federal) or is already in year one or year two in a Nigerian public university,” she said.

The Secretary advised interested applicants to log on to https://www.ojascholarships.org/ to register. 

She added that non-Niger Delta students with extraordinary performance in academics could also apply.

Olabode-Foghi, who is a trustee, explained the organisation as a non-profit Foundation which aims at providing access to higher education for outstanding indigent students from the region.

“Our interest is to contribute towards closing the present gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) in this region.

“We also want to set in motion a strategic advancement that will see Niger Delta become a giant in the STEM field in the near future,” she explained.

On the vision of that foundation, Olabode-Foghi said: “we have always helped people get education.

“We also yearn to see a real change, systemic and lasting improvements/projects that breed better life and growth for our people at home.

“So, merging these two aspirations together was the next best thing for us.

“The idea is not to only grant scholarships and set them on their way, we are keen to providing necessary mentoring, career opportunities and support for as long as it is needed.

“We are looking to help shape this younger generation into renowned professionals.

“We want these people to be advantageously placed so that they are also be able to give back much more and altogether build the Niger Delta.”
