A non-governmental organisation, Uromi Like Minds Initiative (ULMI) has rewarded 11 students from the two technical schools within the Edo community with scholarships. This is as the NGO has fixed December 26 as the date for the final match of its maiden secondary school’s football tournament.
Among the awardees in a ceremony held on November 13, 2021, are six students from the Federal Science and Technical College, Onewa-Uromi and five students from the National Institute of Construction Technology and Management. They received N100, 000 each for winning the merit awards offered by ULMI.
The students, who were selected from different departments in the two institutions, won the inaugural scheme of the yearly scholarship awards for being the best in their departments during the 2020/2021 academic session.
The NGO said the selected students will continue to receive the award value on a yearly basis as long as they meet the minimum performance threshold set by the awarding organisation.
