UIUCares was thrilled that we could tackle another one of our key areas this year, 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. Therefore, we were excited to launch our first international student scholarship fund. The scholarship was for $1000 and was open to any Igbostudent who is enrolled in a US school and has a G.P.A of 3.5 and above.
After careful review by the UIU Cares Committee we are happy to announce the winners of our first annual UIU CaresScholarship:
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. Application cycle will open on May 1, 2018. If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund please click here and specify UIU Cares. We are a 501©3 group and all donations are eligible for tax deduction.We have paid the full scholarship amounts into their school accounts and we wish them well with their studies.
