Chief Tunde Afolabi, Chairman of AMNI International Petroleum Development Company Limited and the Chancellor of First Technical University, Ibadan, has endowed a scholarship scheme to support exceptionally brilliant but indigent students.

Coming under the Josephus Foundation platform, the scholarship is strictly merit-based will cover tuition, accommodation and other fees beneficiaries who are newly admitted undergraduate and direct entry students of Tech-U, beginning from the 2018/2019 academic session till the end of their study.

Professor Ayobami Salami, Vice Chancellor of the University in his address and presentation of the letter of awards to beneficiaries expressed appreciation to the Chancellor for his thoughtfulness and generosity.

He assured that the University is committed to its vision of world-class institution fully grounded in entrepreneurial practices, unique innovation, sustainability science and international best practices for radical societal transformation.

Salami added, “The essence of Tech-U is to raise the bar in tertiary education. This University was established to address the skills gap in the country and not to mass-produce unskilled certificate wielding graduates as it is in the country today. Here, our students are carefully baked to be outstanding entrepreneurs and innovators”.

In addition to the Josephus Scholarship and the LGAs-backed scholarships available for top-flight students at the STEM-BASED institution, Salami noted that the Tech-U management is the commitment to providing more support schemes to enable students to have a best-in-class, globally competitive education.

Pioneer recipients of the scholarship were selected from diverse applicants through a keenly competitive aptitude test. The Scholarship will be offered on an annual basis to newly admitted (UTME, JUPEB and direct entry) students and could be held, subject to satisfactory performance, for the duration of a beneficiary’s programme of study.
