The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Florence Obi, announced the institution’s scholarship program during an awards ceremony held at the university’s Senate Chamber on Saturday.

The scholarship initiative, named the Vice-Chancellor Scholarship, is a response to Obi’s investiture speech on December 1, 2020, where she emphasized repositioning the university to global standards. The scholarship aims to recognize academic excellence and enhance the learning environment for students.

According to Obi, the scholarship is available to the best-performing students in each of the university’s 110 departments. Students with a Grade Point Aggregate (GPA) of at least 4.00 in their 100 level are eligible for the scheme, which covers 50% of the charges payable by the student. The scholarship is renewable throughout the student’s academic journey as long as they maintain the highest Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in their department, not falling below 4.00.

The Vice-Chancellor emphasized the scholarship’s purpose of motivating students towards academic excellence while alleviating financial burdens on them and their parents amidst current economic challenges. Recipients expressed gratitude and determination to uphold academic standards. Miss Rebecca Igboka, a student of Human Anatomy, expressed joy, seeing the scholarship as motivation to work harder.

In the same light, Miss Modesta Onah from the Department of Radiography appreciated the recognition and pledged to persevere despite the pressure of maintaining the highest CGPA in her department.
