Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has offered 30 students of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Anambra, who are indigent but brilliant, scholarships to support their studies at the university.

The beneficiaries are all undergraduates, including one living with disabilities, and spread across levels, pursuing different courses of study.

Addressing the beneficiaries at the ASUU-UNIZIK conference hall, on Monday, the Chairman of the branch, Prof. Kingsley Ubaoji, said each student will be supported with the sum of fifty thousand each (N50,000).

“The union selected the beneficiaries based on their applications and interviews conducted for them to know they truly deserved the award.

According to him, the scholarship award is a directive from the national body of ASUU as a way of lessening the financial burden of some indigent but brilliant students across the nation’s public universities.

“The national body is equally giving out scholarships of N200,000 each to two Unizik indigent students.

“Our job here as an academy Union, is not only to be embarking on strike but also to assist students from less privileged homes who are intelligent, to achieve their professional dreams.

“Over one hundred students applied for the scholarship but only thirty of them scaled through. We are making the gesture a quarterly programme to encourage the students.

“I urged the students to eengage the money on genuine businesses that will generate revenue for them in future, Ubaoji admonished.”
