hereby announces the

Dr. Ediom Ogah Scholarship for Health Sciences

Objective of the Scholarship

The main objective of this scholarship scheme is to provide the funding for African diaspora students to pursue medical or health-related research at United States or European universities. Given the financial challenges that many diaspora Africans encounter in funding higher education, it is hoped that this scholarship will benefit the students selected and their community too.

    Possess outstanding academic performance records; and

    Be in good academic standing in every way


Application dates

Applications may be submitted every year between May 1 and July 15. The selected candidate for each year will be announced by August 15 of that year.
