Hello Advance Africa,
Mine is a thank you for the good work, I managed to win a scholarship after following tips and guidelines in the newsletter. I am currently pursuing an Msc, thanks to you and my sponsors.
As I am writing this email to you today, I am in United Kingdom pursuing an MBA Global Banking and Finance at Birmingham Business School. Do you know why? It is all because I followed each and every instruction you provided to me on Advance Africa website.
The tips, interview techniques, essay writing skills and the frequent scholarship updates have made my dreams come true.
I have been awarded £10,000 MBA African Scholarship 2011/12 by Birmingham Business School.
I emerged the only winner after competing with a number of applicants from Africa.
I wrote the best essay and performed extremely well during the 45 minutes telephone interviews!!!!!!!
All this is because of your encouragement.
I hope this finds you in great health and spirit. I am Grace Mburu. I write to thank for your good work. I have benefitted from your newsletters, last month I participated in an international training on Child Rights in Sweden. Am so happy for the opportunity to learn so much, I believe our children, community and my country will benefit from what I have learnt.
As I look forward to attend phase 2 in Spring next year, I will forever remain grateful to you.
Accept greetings from Austria where I am doing an MA in Peace and Conflict Studies.
This has been thanks to the scholarship updates you have been sending to me. Once more, I am very grateful. I will always be forever indebted to you.

I am pleased to inform you that I was awarded the VLIR scholarship to pursue postgraduate course in Master of Statistics in Biostatistics at Universiteit Hasselt, Belgium.
I would like to thank you for your commitment, hardwork and dedication to provide many scholarship opportunities to prospective students thought out the continent. I have shared the opportunites with my colleagues, friends, family members and suggested to them to subscribe to the newsletter and share with others as well.
Many african students have benefited from these scholarships opportunities and I just happen to be one of them. May the good Lord continue to bless you more and more every new day
Thank you so much,
I have never sent you a message to thank you for the job well done. Allow me say last year I got two scholarships one to study in Sweden and second one to study a collaborative masters program in agricuture for Africa. I thank you for giving the motivation and inspiration to work to look and apply for scholarship. I am finishing my masters and I am looking forward to do my Phd and I believe Advance-Africa.com will give me an opportunity again. All my colleagues now are working to apply for the scholarship. Initailly they thought I was wasting time but now they believe that this newsletter really helps.
Thank you once again for the initiative and the good work you are doing.
I must also appreciate that through your site I have obtained a short course scholarship in Netherlands in April.
I am one kind of person who finds the Advance Africa Newsletter very informative, educative and useful. The AWARD (African Women in Agricultural Research and Development) Fellowship that I won last year is attributed to Advance Africa Newsletter. I have shared the same with a number of colleagues and they tell me the newsletter is superb.
Thanks for all the updates and information you have endlessly given me. I want to take this opportunity to appreciate your efforts and gesture, I finally got a scholarship form RUFORUM and I am in JKUAT having my masters under Research methods - a very exciting and unusual course and new in the world.
Thanks and God bless you,

This is to thank you so much for your emails to me. I want to inform you that I won the 'HIV TRUST Scholarship' and I plan to go to USA for two months early September 2010. I got this advert from your emails to me. I am now very sure I will also get an MPH scholarship which I always look for.
Today I am elated as I have received an offer letter from the Erasmus Mundus Journalism and Media within Globalisation programme that I came across on your website. The programme starts in August and with it comes a full scholarship and an opportunity to study in three countries for one degree.
May God continue to bless you for providing this information to us free of charge. I pray that your blessings may come back in ten-folds.
Dear Joe Ngugi
Please receive my heartfelt pleasure I enjoyed because of your incredible, genuine and hands-on support that has been benefiting many African students which is basics to 21st century (i.e. information). I do have due respect and admiration to you and your colleagues there.
Using the information, I found in Advance Africa Newsletter, I have won a scholarship opportunity from Erasmus Mundus. The Erasmus Mundus scholarship in SUFONAMA will enable me to pursue my MSc by next September 2009 in (Denmark and Wales).
You helped many others and me with such consistency information that is free from spam and cheating.
Thank you very much indeed. Keep up it as usual.

I am a very young Lawyer (Advocate) by profession and was retained as a Staff Development Fellow (SDF) by the University of Zambia to lecture Business Law and Contract Law.
I am so delighted to inform you that after a long search through your Scholarships pool, I have finally been awarded the Prestigious DAAD Scholarship to pursue a split Master of Laws Degree (LLM) in International Criminal Justice tenable at the Humboldt University of Berlin.
I am scheduled to fly from Zambia this afternoon, hence thought of appreciating your work.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.

Just to say thank you for the massive scholarship information. Through the Advance Africa newsletter, I have been offered a Full Fee waiver to do a Ph.D. The information had come at a time when I had given all the hopes of securing any funding for the Ph.D. I do not have much to say apart from thanking you for your untiring commitment to your continent - Africa. May the good Lord to bless you abundantly.
I am writing to appreciate you upon your commitment is creating opportunities for both the disadvantaged and the able in developing their career.
Referencing to the articles of "March 27 2008, ISSUE #071." in which the advertisement below appeared:
"Full MSc Water and Waste Engineering Scholarships - Distance Learning
Loughborough University, UK is offering eight full-fee scholarships for students to study the Water and Waste Engineering MSc by distance learning over a period of up to five years. The awards are only available to nationals of Commonwealth countries who are resident in their home country or in another qualifying Commonwealth country."
I took an initiative to apply for the same. I was offered the scholarship and am due to start my studies by 15th Jan 2008. When I received the information I could not believe I would be among the 8 students selected for the program. I now believe striving and having positive mind pays.
This mail therefore serves to give you a feedback and to appreciate you so much for the endeavours you are putting in reaching the people and create opportunities for developing their career.
Thanks so much

Dear Mr Joe Ngugi,
I am so delighted to communicate you from this part of the world. I am called Simon Nzie of Cameroon nationality. If you could recall, I gave you a call from Cameroon about two months ago informing you that I won the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship - Thanks to the Advance-Africa.Com website.
I promised getting back to you as soon as possible but unfortunately I could not meet up as planned because of my academic load. Well, it is better to be late than never. That's why I am sending this mail to you today.
I do not really have much to say but just to appreciate your wonderful and relentless work you are doing towards the improvement of humanity. Its really wonderful, more grease to your elbow.
I will be spending one year in Germany and the following year in UK. After this, I will be going back to my mother land to share the knowledge and experiences gotten with other fellow Cameroonians.
To end, I am available for any assistance needed towards the achievement of this blessed website. Lets all join our hands and make our Continent-Africa, "A PLACE TO BE."

Dear Advance Africa,
I am now in Norway for my MSc! I am sorry I am late to share you this news! This is your fruit!
You may remember last year when I was in Mekelele University, Ethiopia! I was asking you a lot how to get scholarship abroad! You gave me a lot of advice on how to search! Advance-Africa.com has taught me a lot! After that I became good digger! Searcher!
This year I got two scholarships!
1. In Norway- International Environmental Studies where I am attending now.
2. Belgium- GIS- Governance!
Really I would like to appreciate you a lot for your dedication to helping young and poor people of Africa.
University of Life Science,

I am writing to thank you so much for the great job that you are doing. I heard about this website last year through a friend of mine, I subscribed immediately and within less than a year, I have gotten my self a scholarship through your newsletters.
Unbelievable! I am recommending this website to all my friends because it’s just so unbelievable. My friends can’t believe that I made it within less than a year. I am currently in Gothenburg, Sweden pursuing a Masters degree in International Social Work and Human Rights. Joe, I can’t thank you enough.
Thank you for allowing God to use you as an instrument of peace, hope and prosperity. There is nothing I can give you to say thank you, not even a million dollars, if I had it, would be enough, but I pray for God's blessings upon your love. May He reward you abundantly and prosper you according to his will.
Thank you so much Joe.

I hope you are fine.
Am glad to inform you that through your scholarship Newsletter, I was able to secure three scholarships for the academic year 2008/09; Viz; UPEACE, JJ/WBGSP and VLIR. I decided to accept the VLIR scholarship and am now pursuing a Master in Development Evaluation and Management at the Institute of Development Policy and Management of the University of Antwerp, Belgium.
It would be a great insincerity for me not to send you my heart felt gratitude for availing me the information about scholarship opportunities. If I were Professor Shakespeare, I would have coined new words for you, but kindly accept my humble gratitude.
Please keep the fire burning all over Africa!
