THE JOURNEY SO FAR.
WEEF Scholarship Board received 80 applications with respect to the project. We had our team carryout a thorough vetting of each application to determine genuine beneficiaries. Forty five (45) applications were identified to have meet the required conditions by the Board.
In the first batch of beneficiaries for the WEEF Scholarship project, we enrolled a total of nine (9) students at Zibeh Institute of Technology for a two year National Innovative Diploma program in October 2019. This was due to the funds available to us. Amongst the students enrolled, we had two (2) studying Networking and Systems Security, four (4) in Computer Software Engineering department and three (3) in Digital Multimedia Technology department. We hope to enroll at least thirty one (31) more in the second batch by February 2020.
In February 2020, we enrolled thirteen (13) more students at Zibeh Institute of Technology making a total of twenty two (22). The gender breakdown is as follows; 13 male and 9 female. Of the 22 students enrolled so far, 12 are studying Digital Multimedia Technology, 2 studying Networking and System Security and 8 are studying Software Engineering.
Due to the corona virus outbreak, all schools have been shut down in Nigeria. But the Institute where our beneficiaries are enrolled have been able to continue teaching using an online system as mandated by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
