August 16, 2021

Four students have been awarded scholarships by the African  Children  Talent  Discovery  Foundation  (ACTDF). While three would study in American and British institutions, one of the beneficiaries is studying in Nigeria.

The scholarships which are fully funded are for both undergraduate and graduate schools.

Founder of the foundation,  Engr.  Noah  Dallaji,  who disclosed this at an interactive meeting with the beneficiaries at the  ACTDF  office in  Abuja,  said the gesture was in fulfilment of the vision and mission of the foundation to support and develop Nigerian youths for excellence.

He noted that the students were chosen after a competitive selection process and as approved by the board to pursue their courses of interest at the various institutions.

Dallaji said though the students were set to travel to their respective destinations to begin studies, a new batch was underway as the process for additional awards was being processed.

The beneficiaries include Olatokunbo Kila, who is to study for a Master’s programme in Energy Systems Management at the  University of  Francisco  (USA),  Afolabi  Damilola Oluwaseyi, who is also for a master’s in Public Health at the Leeds  Becket  University  (UK),  Deborah  Amara  Okafor,  a degree in  English and  Philosophy at the  University of Georgia  (Georgia)  and  Onah  Ifunanya  Rita currently studying Microbiology at Dorben Polytechnic, Bwari, Abuja.

“I congratulate all the beneficiaries for being chosen in such a competitive process. Your success is an affirmation of your academic excellence and the potentials it holds for your future if you continue to be steadfast and dedicated to your dreams.

“Let me implore you all to remain patriotic by being good ambassadors of  ACTDF  and our nation”,  Dallaji told the students.
