Share post:

The Management of Osun State University, on Tuesday, 11th February, inaugurated a set of dedicated staff volunteers, who have decided to part with a percentage of their income as scholarship for indigent but diligent students in the school.

The rare gesture is in line with the University’s mission of providing high-quality teaching and learning experiences that will engender the production of entrepreneurial graduates that are capable of impacting positively on their environment while being globally competitive.

The staff volunteers of the scheme will be donating a certain percentage of their salary to give back to some selected indigent but diligent students to cater for their school fees.

The vice-chancellor of the University, Professor Labode Popoola who is equally one of the volunteers advised the team to identify other spirited members of staff who may like to be involved in the gesture as it is believed that the scheme would help in redirecting the destiny of lives of indigent students that may have gone off the track.

Professor Popoola said, “I commend the act of charity of this group. The scheme is the first of its kind in this institution. You can’t do this and not get rewarded in any form. Your efforts in moulding the lives of brilliant but indigent students of the institution are applauded. You’re helping and redirecting the destiny of lives that may have gone off the track. The reward may not be direct to you; it may be to your children or grandchildren. God has a way of compensating people.”

The initiator of the scheme who is also the Director of Research and Linkages, Professor Amos Popoola explained the group is formed to identify and solve finance-related problems being experienced by indigent but diligent students of the institution.

According to him, “Any interested bonafide indigent students from 200 level and above with the minimum cumulative grade point of 2.5 in Osun State University should visit his/her faculty officer or college secretary to indicate interest in the scholarship scheme”.
