Serving Africans around the world.

August 2006, ISSUE #002.


Welcome to this week’s issue. I am very proud of the opportunity to serve you. My mission is simple. To bring African students all scholarship opportunities available around the globe. You no longer have to waste months of valuable time surfing the Net to find them.

My website has of hundreds of links and contact details of organisations that will give you a scholarship or grant. I offer all this absolutely free!

Not only that, I am in the process of going through the major scholarships in the website. I will record the closing dates of scholarships and grants available all year round. By looking at my diary every week, I will notify you of all upcoming deadlines. Once again, this will be delivered to your mail box free of charge!

All I ask of you is to take time in the website and study the opportunities carefully to determine your eligibility.

I also have got great news for writers, artists and those who are good at poetry. I now have a page dedicated to various international exhibitions, competitions and contests. Please study these and participate. No doubt you will be able to take your gifts and talents to the next level.
