UIUCares is thrilled that we could tackle another one of our key areas, Education. We learned of the struggles that our international students have with paying their full tuition, particularly with the ever-fluctuating value of the Naira. In 2017, we were excited to launch our first UIUCares International Student Scholarship fund. The scholarship was for $1000 and was open to any Igbo student who is enrolled in a US school and has a G.P.A of 3.5 and above.
After careful review by the UIUCares Committee we were happy to announce the winners of our first annual UIUCares International Student Scholarship recipients of 2017:
- Ngozichukwu Agu
- Chilee Agunanna
- Prince Akpokiro
- Ikenna Ekelem
- Chidimma Imediewu
- Akachukwu Nwosu
- Tochukwu Oyenze
We have paid the full scholarship amounts into their school accounts and we wish them well with their studies.
Application cycle opens on June 1, 2018 and ends on July 15th, 2018. To apply, click here!
We will be raising funds this year to continue this scholarship fund and this year we have set our goal to $10,000 so that we can offer the $1000 scholarship to 10 students! If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund please click here and specify UIUCares.
We are a 501©3 group and all donations are eligible for tax deduction.
