UDUS to offer scholarships to scholars

To encourage students’ performance, the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto (UDUS) has insituted a yearly Undergraduate Student Excellence Award beginning from next session.

In a statement, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics), Prof. Lawali Abubakar, said the gesture is a way of inspiring industrious students towards scholarship.

It said beneficiaries are entitled to: a scholarship equivalent to the registration fees for the student’s programme; a letter indicating that he/she emerged the best student in previous academic session; attending a cocktail party organised by the vice chancellor with one friend of his choice; as well as having the name of the student published in the university bulletin.

The statement directed deans of faculties to submit names of best students in their faculties who have made a 4.50 cumulate grade point average (CGPA) on the five-point scale.

“In view of this therefore, you are hereby to submit names of best students in each programme in your respective faculties with a 4.50 CGPA on the five-point scale to the Office of Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic),” the statement stated.
Reacting to the development, Mikail Rodiyah, a 200-Level student of Law, noted that the scholarship would go a long in encouraging students to perform more excellently.

She said: “It is a very encouraging development since the scholarship is a prize for their hard-earned grades, it will encourage the students to perform very well in their study.”

Similarly, Lawal Maryam, a 300-Level Faculty of Agriculture undergraduate, lauded the management. Maryam is however dissatisfied with the criteria, which she described as ‘too strict’, and might hinder the chance of many students from winning it.

“Actually, it is a good development, Maryam said, adding: “But I’m not pleased with the requirements. They are too strict. What will happen if no one makes 4.5 (CGPA) from the faculty? This may, in fact, impede some departments from enjoying this opportunity. The qualification should purely be for best students in every department, irrespective of their CGPA
