He wrote on Twitter:
"I have spent almost all my savings on application documents,fees and standardized test and I am left with #300k which is not enough to book Flight ticket travel materials or sort my accommodation expenses.
"I believe with your financial support & push, I'd be able to achieve my dream of becoming a Physics Professor and be of great influence to others coming behind me!"
Legit.ng contacted Smart to know why the scholarship did not cover his travel and accommodation, he said that he is expected by the school to pay for those himself.
He told Legit.ng:
"There are no deficits in the scholarship except my accommodation expenses and flight fee. I need accommodation fee for the first month and little change to sustain myself for 1 month before I start getting paid my stipends."
