UI Receives Additional Funds for Students Scholarship


The University of Ibadan has received an additional sum of Five Million Naira for the establishment of the Florence Fakolujo Scholarship for the financial support of deserving students pursuing their studies in Psychology at the Department of Psychology, University of Ibadan.

The scholarship scheme is being instituted by a dedicated supporter of education and social welfare, eager to contribute to students’ academic advancement. He has, however, chosen to remain anonymous.

It will be an annual scholarship scheme for indigent students to alleviate the financial burden faced by students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, thus enabling them to focus more on their studies and professional development within the field of Psychology.

The scholarship will cover a comprehensive range of expenses, including but not limited to:
● tuition fees for a full session
● stipends for books and academic supplies
● Additional financial support for living expenses, such as accommodation during school sessions.

According to the proposal from his Solicitors, the anonymous donor recognizes the invaluable role that the University of Ibadan plays in nurturing future leaders and professionals in Psychology and is eager to collaborate with the institution.

The formalisation, documentation, and modalities for the disbursement of the funds of the scholarship scheme will be worked out as soon as possible.
