A young Nigerian man, Vincent Nwosu, on Thursday, March 11, came on Twitter to announce how he was about to get a scholarship to study for his doctorate degree at the University of Delaware.
Nwosu appreciated everybody who made his PhD dream come through as he narrated how they all helped him through valuable online lessons.
The man advised those hoping to get his kind of opportunity, telling them that going for information and applying it by themselves is the best.
The young Nigerian man said a scholarship is really sweet if one can make the sacrifice of putting in all the works.
Nwosu disclosed that he never had to write, GRE, TOEFL, pay an application fee, or having a master’s degree.
As if that was not enough, the university also increased his monetary offer so he can bring along his woman who he is getting married to in April 2021.

Below are some of the reactions to his post:
"I wish for an opportunity like this for Masters programme. Be kind enough to help me. Thank you sir."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Chijioke Ekechi, a Nigerian youth and Covenant University Bachelors of Science holder, has made his country proud with his academic excellence.
Ekechi bagged a PhD scholarship in the US without having a master's degree. He said the scholarship gave him admission into Tennessee Technological University in the US for a study in 'Automation and Artificial Intelligence'.
The awardee, who graduated with a strong 'Upper Credit' at Covenant University, explained that the scholarship allows for master's degree which automatically transfers its credit units to the PhD programme expected to be wrapped up within three to four years.
