2011 Gani Fawehinmi Scholarships Awards, Apply Now!

2011 Gani Fawehinmi Scholarships Awards, Apply Now!

Scholarship Background

Though Gani dares, he also cares. Based on his experience of financial deprivation as a student in London, he instituted his own Scholarship Scheme in 1971. Every year, since 1971 to date, he has been awarding scholarships to brilliant children of those he categorises as victims of socio-economic injustice - the poor, the deprived, the denied, the neglected, the ignored and the persecuted. More than 1,000 (one thousand) poor students from various parts of Nigeria - North, East, South and West have been educationally emancipated by the life-line assistance given to them by this man.

In the year 2000 alone, Gani gave scholarship awards to 45 (forty-five) indigent students of institution of higher learning from different parts of the country. He travelled to the far North on the 25th and 26th July, 2000 where he gave scholarship to 25 (twenty-five) students of northern origin in the higher institutions. The ceremony was held at Arewa House, Kaduna.

On the 28th and 29th of August, 2000, he gave scholarship to 20 (twenty) students of Southern origin in higher institutions of learning.

Because of his belief in free education at all levels, he travelled to many countries ending up in Paris, France to collect research materials in 1973 and 1974 for his book titled
Peoples Right to Free Education and in 1975 he launched the Free Education Association of Nigeria.
