Stormzy launches Cambridge scholarship for black students

Published

on

The Stormzy Scholarship will fund two black students to attend the prestigious university.

STORMZY is a true champion for black excellence.
The rapper recently announced the launch of a publishing imprint called Merky Books to help young writers become published authors and donated £9,000 to an Oxford student’s crowdfunder for her to go to Harvard in the US.
Now, the hitmaker is adding to that list of good deeds, after announcing that he will help fund two black British students to go to Cambridge University.
The Stormzy Scholarship will pay for tuition fees and provide a maintenance grant for up to four years of an undergraduate course.
The first two students will start their courses at the beginning of the new academic year this October with two further students selected for 2019 entry. This year’s entries will be self-funded by Stormzy however, he hopes to engage more support from additional investors to become part of the scheme.
Speaking to the BBC, the Cold MC said: “It’s so important for black students, especially, to be aware that it can 100% be an option to attend a university of this calibre. We’re a minority, the playing ground isn’t level for us and it’s vital that all potential students are given the same opportunity.”
He added: “There are so many young black kids all over the country who have the level of academic excellence to study at a university such as Cambridge – however we are still under represented at leading universities.
“I hope this scholarship serves as a small reminder that if young black students wish to study at one of the best universities in the world, then the opportunity is yours for the taking – and if funding is one of the barriers, then we can work towards breaking that barrier down.”
Stormzy announced the scheme at his old school, Harris Academy in Crystal Palace, south London on A-level results day.
The University of Cambridge’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope, commented: “Stormzy is an inspiration, not just for his music but for his engagement on social issues and encouragement of young people. He has achieved great success in his career, but recognises that this was at the expense of his studies and the option of a place at a top university.
“He wants to inspire talented young black people who have their sights set on university to follow their dreams. The studentships are a beacon for black students who might otherwise have felt they could not come to Cambridge.”
Since announcing the Stormzy scholarship, fans on social media have praised the rapper for showing support to the youth.
Journalist Nadine White tweeted: “Stormzy has been making so many moves to enhance the lives of other people. #StormzyScholarship? I could cry. That’s beautiful.”Another Twitter user wrote: “Great to see #stormzy giving back to his community”
See more reactions below:

To be eligible for a 2018 entry ‘The Stormzy Scholarship’ applicants must be of black ethnicity and be holding an unconditional offer.
Applications must be submitted no later than Friday 31 August 2018.

Rector of the institution, Mr. Samuel Ogunro said the last four decades has placed the institution a global scale among its counterpart with numerous achievements which makes the celebration a deserving moment.
International collaboration
He explained that the institution had earned several awards and was reputed to signing memorandum of understanding with International College of Aeronautics and Aviation Studies, South Korean Government and other international agencies to enhance its global relevance.
According to the Rector, the polytechnic has produced over 120,000 students over the years and who are making impacts in various works of life including the current Deputy Governor of Ogun State in South West Nigeria, Mrs. Yetunde Onanuga.

NGO organises spelling bee for educational excellence

Published

on

An Abuja-based Non-Governmental Organisation, “Shamudo Spelling” has organised a spelling bee competition in the nation’s capital to help promote excellence in education among the youth.
The event which had about 22 primary and secondary schools participating, attracted highly placed members of the society and Nollywood, including the former Niger State Governor, Dr. Mua’azu Babangida Aliyu who is the grand patron of the NGO and popular actors, Charles Awurum and Emmanuel Fred, among others.
The former Governor of Niger state, Dr Babangida Aliyu who spoke during the event advised the organizers, students, parents, public and private sectors to give more priority to support the organisation in other to improve educational standard in the country.
Dr Babaguda Aliyu encouraged organizers to stratiegise the words so as not to have both primary and secondary schools spelling same words as he praised the pupils and students who participated while urging them to also engage in extra-cullicula activities
Commenting on the forthcoming general election, he urged them to vote wisely so as to ensure that the right persons are the ones voted into power come 2019.
“When you vote, do not vote based on emotions or on the fact that the person is from your place, but vote for competence, experience, development and welfare. Whether the cat is white or black does not matter, so long as it catches the rat. It does not matter where our President is from, so long as he is competent,” the grand patrol said.
Always bear in mind the sacrifices your parents are making, to get your uniform and school fees, when they give you rice, they eat eba. when you grow, the responsibility will switch. Dont play with this opportunity.
“Parents, pay attention to the education of your children, pay attention to the kinds of friends they keep, but dont go attacking their teachers when they err, report them to appropriate authorities, so they do not copy such habit from you,” Dr Babagida Aliya noted.
He therefore presented awards to teachers, police officers, and others who were selected based on nomination.
The Coordinator of the NGO, “Shamudo Spelling Bee”, Comrade John Anyebe, while addressing the press, appealed for adequate attention to educational programs such as these.
While expressing his gratitude to the grand patron, Babangida Aliyu, Dr. Jumai Ahmadu and other supporters of his NGO, Mr Anyebe underscored the importance of giving children qualitative education and urged parents and teachers to make it a reality so that the future of their children would be brighter.
Some of the prizes given out to winners inluded a bicycle, galaxy tab, text books and medals, among others.

Financing Your Studies in US & Finding Study Abroad Loans

Published

on

Study abroad loans are available to US students going abroad, whether they are going for just a semester or for a year. Learn more about how you can get the money you need to study overseas.

A. Overview

Financial aid can come from various sources, starting with personal & family funds and also from U.S. & Foreign institutions, governments, and sponsors such as companies & foundations.
Last year, 82% of undergraduate international students relied on their own personal & family income as their primary source of funding. Many of these students may have received a aid from other sources, but still relied on family funds as their primary source. About 13% of these students relied on US colleges and universities as their primary source of funding. An additional 3% relied on their home governments or universities as the primary source while less than 4% relied on the other types as their primary source.
In most cases, foreign students are in competition with U.S. students for financial aid funds. Foreign students should therefore explore all opportunities for funding in their own country before applying for U.S. based aid.
Students who have limited financial resources should consider attending community colleges for the first two years of study, then transferring to a 4-year institution using the 2+2 pathyway. Community colleges usually have much lower tuition rates; however, they often do not offer on-campus housing for international students, which is just one of many costs that international students should consider when calculating the costs of an US education. Other costs to expect include tuition, room and board (food), transportation, health insurance, and personal expenses.

B. Who Should Apply ?
Students who have a greater chance of obtaining financial assistance usually have the following:
evidence of high academic achievement,
high standardized test scores (SAT I, SAT II; TOEFL),
demonstrable financial need but enough private funding to at least cover part of the cost. Only the most exceptional students could expect to get full support,
a unique talent or skill, or a record of meaningful involvement in extracurricular activities, and
individualized letters of recommendation enumerating the students’ abilities.

C. Types of Financial Aid
The aid is usually provided by a U.S. college or university. How substantial the financial support will be depends on the kind of aid that is available. Frequently it will be a combination of the types listed below:
Merit Based Scholarship: Based on academic qualifications regardless of financial need. The student has no work or repayment obligations.
Need Based Scholarship: Aid is based on financial need but usually in conjunction with academic achievement. The student has no work or repayment obligations.
Athletic Scholarship: Generally based on athletic ability of the applicant but not completely irrespective of academic performance.
Part-Time Campus Employment: The student is able to earn money by working on campus for a certain number of hours per week. Some schools require all students to take on-campus jobs thereby reducing the overall cost of education at that university.
Cooperative Programs: These programs allow students to alternate periods of full-time study with full-time work. The work generally begins at the end of the sophomore year and adds one year to a 4-year degree.
University Loans: Students receive loans which are expected to be repaid after graduation.
Advanced Standing: If a student qualifies, he can apply for advanced placement at the institution at which he wants to study. This does not constitute financial aid in the true sense of the word but is a means of cutting down on costs of the program by reducing its duration.

D. Part-time Work
As an F-1 student in Active status, you immediately have an option for one kind of work: on-campus employment. However, there are some things to keep in mind.
Student employment in the US usually garners a moderately low wage and, combined with limited work hours for international students, will prevent you from being able to pay all of your US university costs this way.
Although you may work shortly after you arrive, you must be in Active status and your DSO must approve your request. After your DSO approves your request, you’ll be given a letter of approval. This letter, along with a letter from your employer, will help you get a Social Security number. When school is in session, you may only work 20 hours per week; on school holidays and breaks, you may work up to 40 hours per week.
After a full year at school, you could be eligible for off-campus employment. Approval for this requires special authorization from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). In order to apply for this kind of employment authorization, you must receive a recommendation from your DSO and file a Form I-765, “Application for Employment Authorization” with USCIS. After USCIS approves your employment, they will send you a Form I-766, “Employment Authorization Document” (EAD).
You may not begin work until you have received your EAD. Just as with on-campus work, while school is in session you are restricted to a 20 hour work week.
For more information about international student employment in the US, please visit http://studyinthestates.dhs.gov/students/resources/working.

E. Application Procedure
Applications for financial aid are generally only accepted for admission for the fall term in August/September and are usually due around the same deadline as the admissions application. Some schools automatically consider applicants for financial aid, while others will request a separate financial aid application. You should check with each university you are applying to for more details.
When applying for financial aid, most universities will ask international students to report their family’s income and other financial assets via a particular application or College Board’s financial aid profile application. International applicants with dual American citizenship should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You should always be as honest as possible when reporting your financial abilities and needs and be aware of how the reporting process will affect your admissions chances at need-blind versus need-aware schools.
Need-blind schools are universities that do not take your financial need into account when deciding whether to admit you; need-aware schools are universities that do. US universities consider your financial need to be calculated by the total cost of attendance minus your family’s Expected Financial Contribution. It is important not to exaggerate this need either too high or too low because of the impacts it could have on your admissions decisions.

F. Loans
Though rare, there are international student loans available to individuals who meet certain criteria. Many loans require a cosigner.

A cosigner is someone who guarantees and is responsible for payment to the loaning institution if for any reason you are unable to pay back the loan. A variety of organizations and institutions provide private loans to international students. Many provide assistance that is targeted to students from specific regions or countries and who meet certain criteria.

Selecting a U.S. University

Published

on

The first step to pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a U.S. university is choosing the universities to which you would like to apply. There are over four thousand accredited institutions of higher learning in the United States, so it is important to find the right fit for you!

UNDERSTANDING YOUR OPTIONS
When choosing an institution, you will have the choice between a public university and a private college.
Americans also distinguish between four-year universities (where the end result is a bachelor’s degree) and two-year community colleges, or junior colleges (where the end result is an associate’s degree). Many students attend a community college for two years before continuing their bachelor’s degree at a university. As community college tuition is usually significantly less expensive than tuition at a four-year university, this can be a practical, money-saving option for many students!
Make sure that you are applying to accredited universities, institutions that have been peer-reviewed and are considered reputable! You can double check the accreditation status of your school through the Council for Higher Education Accreditation at www.chea.org/search or the Department of Education at ope.ed.gov/accreditation.

FINDING THE RIGHT FIT
When choosing a university, some major factors to consider include the institution’s academic profile, the overall student experience, cost and financial aid options, and student support services.

Academic Profile
Focus of university: There are a wide range of universities, from small liberal arts institutions that offer only undergraduate degrees to big research institutions with large populations of grad school students.

Majors and minors offered: It’s crucial to make sure that the universities to which you are applying offer the majors and/or minors you are looking for! While all universities offer degrees in the usual academic fields, students wishing to pursue a bachelor’s degree in a more specialized field (such as engineering, forestry, or education) must seek out universities which offer these degrees.
Selectivity: ie., how hard it is to get in.
Credit given for AP/IB courses: Are you enrolled in an International Baccalaureate program? Many U.S. universities will give students credit for the IB classes they took in high school, which can save you time and money.
Class size (‘student/faculty’ ratio vs. average class size)

Research opportunities for undergraduates
Overall Experience
What kind of experience do you want to have outside of the classroom? Are you interested in living in a big city, or would you rather spend four years on a traditional residential campus? Some factors to consider when imaging your ideal student experience include:
Size: Enrollment at U.S. universities can vary from under 1,000 to over 35,000. Some foreign students feel lost in these very large institutions and, at present, small private colleges show more interest in receiving applications from foreign students.

Demographics and diversity
University culture: Do you want to go to a university where most students live on or near campus, or would you prefer a ‘commuter school’ where most students travel home on the weekends? Are you interested in joining a fraternity or sorority? What about participating in student clubs and organizations, or playing a sport? Be aware of what sort of options are available for students outside of the classroom.
Setting: Some universities in big towns have many commuters, which means there is relatively little campus life, and this is usually a less suitable environment for foreign students. However, urban campuses usually have higher access to public transportation, which may make your experience easier!

Student Support Services
Academic Advising & Support
Career Center: University Career Centers can be an invaluable resource for students, offering opportunities for internships and mentoring as well as a connection to an active alumni association.
Student Wellness: Look for universities that prioritize students’ mental and physical health! This may include student recreation facilities, an on-campus health center, and/or mental health and counseling facilities.

International Student Services
Cost and Financial Aid
A bachelor’s degree from a U.S. university does not come cheap. Compared to other countries, higher education is very costly in the United States. Tuition alone varies from approximately $5,000 in state-supported institutions to $30,000 in some large private institutions. These figures cover only tuition and do not include factors like transportation, books, health insurance, and living expenses.
Every school is mandated to have a cost calculator on their website. This tool will allow you to estimate the total cost of attending the university!
While the majority of international students finance their studies through personal or family funds, there are also financial aid options available. To learn more about financial aid, check out the Education   section of our website.

Tuition Aid Offered to Sporty Foreign Students

Published

on

Megan Connolly, a junior from Cork, Ireland, said the scholarship she received played a big role in her decision to choose Florida State University.

College athletics are a big deal in the U.S.
And that gives talented international students an inroad to American universities.
Among the more than 460,000 student athletes in the U.S., just over 19,000 are international student athletes, according to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which oversees all things student athletics. That’s nearly 20 percent.
Coming to the U.S. gave her “the opportunity to grow as a soccer player and as a person,” said Gloriana Villalobos of Costa Rica, who plays for Florida State University’s women’s soccer team.
Villalobos is a freshman pursuing a degree in athletic training, but said she has high hopes for her soccer career. She was named to the Costa Rican roster for the 2015 Women’s World Cup that took place in Canada.
Soccer, the world’s most played and watched sport, offers a large number of internationals sports slots and scholarships on U.S. campuses. There are nearly 3,700 international soccer players competing at NCAA schools at all levels — Division I, II and III, according to the NCAA.
Division I schools are typically the biggest and have the largest budget for athletics and scholarships. Division II schools typically balance studies and athletics, so are selective about their sports scholarships. Division III schools are not allowed to give out athletic scholarships, so academics are the primary focus for their student athletes.

Megan Connolly, an FSU junior from Cork, Ireland, said the scholarship she received played a big role in her decision.
“It’s a lot more expensive in America than anywhere in Europe to go to college and play soccer,” Connolly said. The scholarship was a deciding factor.
Nearly 2,700 play on men’s soccer teams while nearly 1,000 play on women’s soccer teams. Only tennis has more international women than international men.
To obtain a visa for international collegiate athletes, they first must be accepted by a college or university. Many students say the process can be challenging. The biggest issue for Villalobos was waiting.
It can be nerve-wracking, she said, while you wait to hear back about the approval. Luckily for her, she was approved in time for her to get her season underway.
However,“I don’t think it’s as hard as other countries,” said Canadian international and FSU freshman Gabby Carle.
Geography can be a big part of the process. Carle said that as a Canadian, she did not need a visa.
Settling in a new country and on a new team can be tough for international athletes, especially coming from far away. FSU Junior Natalia Kuikka, from Kemi, Finland, said that playing with other foreign players made the transition much easier.
“I’m from Finland and [Megan Connolly] is from Ireland, so we have a European connection,” Kuikka said. “We have the same background, so it was really easy to get to know each other.”
Ismael Noumansana, a senior at Lenoir-Rhyne University who was born in Mali and spent his childhood in France, is trying to play soccer professionally. Noumansana learned about the opportunity to play collegiately in the United States from an agency in France.
“They told me I can come to the U.S. to play at a good level and get a degree at the same time,” said Noumansana. “Hopefully at the end of this year I can find a professional contract.”
Noumansana also played in the Premier Development League (PDL), an amateur soccer league that caters to collegiate athletes in the summer. It gives them a chance to play in a professional setting and maintain their NCAA eligibility. In summer 2017, he played the Ocean City Nor’easters in New Jersey.
“It is really good to play in the PDL if you want to play professionally,” Noumansana said. “People get to know you.”
Many of the international players cherish their sporting career as much or more than their academic careers. This is not say they do not understand the importance of a degree: Noumansana noted that the degree will help him much more when his playing career is over.

Shaan Stuart played for Wheeling Jesuit University after coming to the United States from his home country of New Zealand. He was also part of the Ocean City Nor’easters PDL team last season with Noumansana.
Stuart has graduated and moved to England to work in marketing and play soccer. He is playing for Brocton Football Club who competes in the Midland Football League, which is the ninth division in England’s soccer pyramid.
His story is one that shows that internationals can benefit both academically and athletically in the United States. This was Stuart’s plan all along, he said.
“I came to the United States to continue playing football [soccer], to learn in the classroom, and to experience a different culture,” he said. “I would undoubtedly recommend [going to the U.S.]. It’s such a fantastic experience.”

U.S. trains 187 Nigerian students on robotics

Published

on

The United States Consulate General Lagos, in collaboration with RoboRAVE International, a U.S.-based robotics education academy, trained 187 Nigerian students on robotics.
Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback and information processing.
These technologies are used to develop machines that can substitute for humans and replicate human actions.
Speaking during the robotics workshop on Saturday in Lagos, the U.S. Consulate Public Affairs Officer, Mr Russell Brooks, said that there was the need to acquire the required skills for the technology’s future.
Brooks said that the training was toward the U.S. Consulate’s mission to encourage good relationship between Nigeria and the U.S.
He said that the workshop was meant to boost technology education in Nigeria by engaging the participating students in hands-on robotics activities.
According to him, the training is to stimulate students’ interest in maths and sciences, as well as careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
“At some point in life, you are going to look for job to earn money to support your family.
“In order to do that, you are going to need to acquire the required skills.
“The future of technology is going to be based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), hence, the need for robotics training,’’ he said.
The Director, RoboRAVE Nigeria, Mr Kingsley Imade, said that the national event was the second edition in Nigeria and was to prepare students for the future.
Imade said that RoboRAVE would be having states training in schools in Ondo, Enugu, Asaba, Yenagoa and Osogbo.
He said that the third edition of the national robotics workshop would be held in October 2019.
The 187 students are from 29 primary and secondary schools across Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, and Edo States, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The workshop was facilitated by an international faculty, including RoboRAVE International Director of Global Programmes, Mr Russ Fisher-Ives and RoboRAVE North America Director, Mr Brian Montoya.
