As a build up to the commemoration of the memorial anniversary of the former Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Agagu, the Olusegun Agagu Foundation has announced the inauguration of a new series of education support programmes for indigenes of Ondo state and Nigerians at large.
The Foundation’s educational programmes, which are in forms of Full scholarship and Prizes for different categories of individuals who are students of Secondary schools and undergraduates in Nigerian Universities, according to statement by Feyi Agagu, Secretary of the Foundation, are drawn in line with the Mission Statement of the Foundation and the credo of the late academic and administrator, which is to leave things better than he met them by working passionately towards intellectual excellence, good governance and national development.
Starting from the 2015/16 academic session, the Foundation, in partnership with the Governing Council of Adeleke University, Ede Osun state, is awarding full scholarship for suitably qualified applicants to study Computer Science, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Chemistry and Public Health.
This particular scholarship at the Adeleke University, is specifically meant only for deserving students from Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo state who have demonstrated a commitment to forging their education in spite of the gorging financial hardships they are facing. Late Agagu is from that local government.
Apart from the existing ones at the University of Ibadan, also for benefits of Nigerian undergraduates are the reinvigorated ongoing scholarship and Prizes at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State.
