6th Annual Scholarship Essay Competition Winners Announced

The Nigeria Higher Education Foundation (NHEF) is pleased to announce the winners of the 6th Annual NHEF Scholarship Essay Competition.

Since its launch in 2015, the Competition has served as a platform that encourages Nigerian university students to think critically and strategically on issues that are of vital importance to Nigeria’s sustainable growth and development.

This edition of the competition focused on the role of digital technology in the Nigerian higher education system.  Students were challenged to provide solutions on how to leverage digital technology in the development of Nigeria’s higher education system, using relevant case studies or examples.

This year, we received a record number of submissions from the growing student community at NHEF Partner Universities and selected three (3) finalists following rigorous academic evaluation by our expert panel of judges:

Oyekan Ayomide Emmanuel, a 200 level, Medicine and Surgery student from the University of Ibadan emerged as the Grand Prize winner of the most competitive round of the competition till date.

The NHEF also wishes to congratulate the following students:

First Runner-up: Bako Nathan Musa (Bayero University, Kano)

Second Runner-up: Oluwasemilore Enoch Shadare (University of Lagos)

We thank all applicants for their participation and remain committed to our goal of harnessing the skills of the Nigerian youth and provide higher education institutions with the necessary tools and resources needed in development and advancement.
