UniPort Student Gets Scholarship To Egyptian Varsity By Ethel Timi-Johnso

A first-year student of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Miss Marvellous Chukueggu, has been awarded a five-year scholarship scheme tenable at the British University in Egypt. The scholarship was made possible through a collaboration between the two universities facilitated by Dr. Eucharia Nwaichi of the Department of Biochemistry.

Congratulating the student for scaling the stringent selection process, Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of Administration, Professor Regina Ogali, commended Dr. Nwaichi for her role in attracting such valued institutional collaboration to the University.

“We want you to be a good ambassador of the University and do us proud, so that your achievements and sound academic record would open more opportunities for other students and our University,” Professor Ogali told Miss Chukueggu.

Giving an insight on the endowment of the scholarship scheme which would have 10 beneficiaries to be selected across the Faculties in the University, Dr. Nwaichi, who is the contact person in the University, described the British University initiative as her way of giving back to the University.

 “This is the outcome of a Nanotechnology Facility launch that I attended in the British University in Egypt. After series of interactions with the Management of the University, we decided on an institutional partnership with my own University which was graciously approved by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ndowa Lale. I am thankful to the University Management for the support and I am hoping that this would pave way for more collaborations in future,” Dr. Nwaichi said.

In her response, the beneficiary, Miss Chukueggu, described the scholarship as an opportunity to develop her potentials. She expressed gratitude to Managements of the two universities for affording her the rare opportunity, promising to make the University and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences proud.
