    However, i understand that this very scholarship in question is meant for PhD supervisors only, nevertheless, i’ll like to plead that you consider our CV’s especially those of us that almost made First Class in our masters for PhD Sponsorship.
    I for one did my theses in Character modeling and animation and i hope i’ll be worth given a shot at it.
