  10. I am Rev. Josephat Sahani Kaboya aged 39 years, an employee with National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) at Tabora Research Centre in Tanzania.

    I have been working with this Research Institution since 1993 to date as a Senior Laboratory Technologist. In 2001, I completed a two year course of Advanced Diploma in Medical Laboratory Sciences (specialized in Parasitology and Medical Entomology) at the Muhimbili University of health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) by then was known as Muhimbili University College of health Sciences (MUCHS)

    Last year i.e 2008, I was offered a place to pursue MSc -Research/PhD in Biomedical Sciences (Biology of Cancer) in the school of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Liverpool, UK.

    I tried to look for scholarship/sponsorships but I didn’t get any assistance financially. This year (during this academic year 2009/2010) the Liverpool school authority has nominated me again to pursue the same course.

    I therefore, ask you to assist me financially to meet the school required tuition fee (pounds 12,000), bench fee (pounds 3,000.
    Bench fee in years 2-4 will be ponds 6,000 = pounds 18,000.

    The course is of 4 years and this offer is a conditional one (i.e. it depends on the availability of funds) Also, the course commences on 21st September,2009

    I hope that, my financial request will be considered as this course is very important not only to me but also to my institute (NIMR), country and the World at large.

    Thanks and God bless you forever.

    Yours truly,

    Rev. Josephat Sahani Kaboya,

  13. Gregory Mensah says:

    I have applied for this award for the 2009/2010 academic year to study in the Netherlands. I want to find out when I should expect the outcome of the results. Hoping to hear from you soon. Thank you very much.

  14. ALI says:

    First of all I would like to thank all of you and your institution for providing the scholarship information. My name is Ali Ebrahim. I am from Ethiopia which is part of East Africa. I have Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Haramaya University in economics at 2008.Now I am working in one project which is owned by different Germen Ngos and the Ethiopian government under the ministry of capacity building. The project focuses on four areas which are private sector development, university reform, TVET system development and quality infrastructure.

    Now I am very interested to continue my further education (masters) if I can get any scholarship that relates to my field.Eventhough, I have high interest to continue my further education I have not the financial strength to do so that. I am living in a third world or developing country. It is known that in such countries it is very difficult even to have good daily life. It is very difficult and impossible to continue further education in such countries. Since there is no such further education in these this creates shortage of skilled man power. There is enough and unutilized resource in these developing African countries but the main and chronic problem is that there is no skilled man power to mobilize and use such resource. Today we are living in a global system in which the change or failure in one continent or country affects the other one directly or indirectly. Our world is coming in to one village. For me it is good if I am specialized in my field which is very interesting for my country specifically and the world or globe in general. ECONOMICS, the back bone or necessary field for every country and I am also interested in any business field to specialize .So I am very happy if you provide me with a scholarship any where with any economics or business related field. It may be in the fields of business adminstration, development economics, public adminstration, international trade, policy analysis and designing, macro economics and others

    I am sure that you will provide me with any scholarship that related my interest

    With regards

  70. Hi,i was happy when i saw your good news of offering scholarship to individuals for post graduate studies because i thought another oportunity has come to me to realize my dream of higher education.But one of the requirements;submitting admission letter from the desired institution has blocked this opportunity for me.This is because,as a child born to poor peasant farms in northern ghana,who has subsisted mainly on student loan to obtain his university degree at the university of ghana ,and is currently on national service,it would be impossible for me to obtain admission at any university for post graduate studies with regards to finance.I would therefore be pleased if you could help me in this area so as to realise my dream through your schplarship.Waiting to hear favourably from you.Thank you.

    It’s really a great opportunty. I have got an admission to a university in U.S for spring 2009. Please look at the folowing letter I have been writing to the university which offered me the admission a minute ago.

    “”Subject: Admission Deferral Request
    I, the undersigned Samson Laine Ghebremariam, am an international student applying for deferring the admission offered to me to an MS in Mathematics and Statistics program, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences,(Spring 2009 to fall 2009). I have no idea to express how bad I am feeling to lose my time waiting for a couple of months. Unfortunately, things do not go the right way. The person, who had promised me to cover all the expenses I may need during my entire time of study, got a problem. For this reason, I decided to defer the admission date for arranging my financial requirements. Now I kindly request you not only to defer the admission but also to offer me a scholarship award. Please have a look at my documents and if there are things that I may require to compete for your scholarship award, please let me know so that I will address them to your satisfaction sooner. I am badly in need of your priceless assistance about deferring my admission and the scholarship opportunities.

    I look forward to hearing a positive reply from you very soon.


    I hope you will help me alot in my future endevours.

  105. Dear Sir/Madam
    I am a Mosotho Male of 27years from the country called Lesotho down in Southern Africa. I have just graduated from the National University of Lesotho and I am an LLB holder( September 2008). I have been involved in so many community works and outreaches during my university days. For instance I was the vice-president of NUL-Positive Image(2007) which is the students’ association fighting against HIV& AIDS pandemic within the campus. I was also the co-odinator in the following year(2008). Our students’ association is affiliated with LENASO at national/country level, Lenaso is a member of SANASO which also is a member of AFRICASO which falls under ICASO.The above-mentioned organisations have joined the fight against HIV&AIDS throughout the world.Consequently I have attended so many workshops and I have been involved in many community out-reaches in my country and at SADC level. Last year( Nov 2007) I attended the SANASO AGM in BOTSWANA and currently I am volunteering at LENASO(Lesotho Network of Aids Services Organization).
    Can I apply for OFID scholarship concurrently with the application to an institution for admission?
    Yours sincerely
    Eric Thulo

    dear responsible people,
    as graduates from developing countries, we appreciate your concern to bring light to our lands, however the first condition of limiting entry to only 32 years is already a bias. Why dont you make the age limit open for all? You limit a lot of people!

    Humble Inquiry for Scholarship

    May I take this opportunity to introduce my self to you? I am called Sam Sagani, a Sudanese refugee living in Kenya , a young man of 24 years of age. I took refuge in Kenya at a very early age but never made it for resettlement in USA due to reasons beyond my control. I have never heard of my parents where about and whether they are still alive or not, I am not sure but I am living in the hope that one day I will get to see them again.

    I have managed through the refugee camps to finish Secondary School and Diploma in Community Health and Psychology which has led me to become more interested health field, and I want to go ahead up to Degree level.

    I am now in great need of acquiring skills or taking a course which can help me secure a job and make a difference in the lives of others when I return to Sudan . I am interested in studying any where possible, and most importantly here in Africa .

    I would be very grateful if you could kindly help me in raising some funds for my studies and if possible find me a college where I can do it, as I also do know of some here in Nairobi Kenya .

    I will appreciate very much your kind consideration on this humble request. I look forward to hearing from you.
