The duo of Miss Oladunni Akisanmi and Master Agwu Victory James, are winners of the second edition of the annual university scholarship award of the education endowment fund presented by the Hope for Women in Nigeria Initiative.
The Hope for Women in Nigeria Initiative, HOFOWEM is a pet project of Mrs. Bolanle Ambode, the First Lady of Lagos State.
While presenting the scholarship at the HOFOWEM office, Mrs Ambode commended the students for excelling in the selection process and for their brilliant performances in their Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Examination.
According to Mrs Ambode, the scholarship scheme was established to encourage indigent but brilliant students in public secondary schools in Lagos State, to pursue degree programmes of their choice in any Nigerian higher institution of learning. It is to encourage serious students that being financially deprived is not the end of a dream.”
The HOFOWEM Education Scholarship Endowment Fund awards scholarships annually to fund the tertiary education of brilliant but indigent students in public secondary schools in Lagos State, in any Nigerian higher institution of learning.
