A brilliant young man by the name of Jude Ogbodo has recently taken to social media to announce his latest academic feat with his followers.
The post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the LinkedIn timeline of Jude had him recounting that after successfully completing his undergraduate with first-class, he started applying for international scholarships to no avail.
According to him, he decided not to give up but improve his academic skills and knowledge and apply to more schools. He applied for about 32 scholarships in various fields of studies and sent 60 emails to professors in several countries, but in the end, he got rejected by 27 of them.
"In 2021, I resolved to improve my relevant academic skills and knowledge and then tripled the number of applications I submitted. Between the months of April 2021 and April 2022, I applied for about 32 scholarships in public health, community health, global health, international health, biological science, parasitology, and entomology in Europe, USA, Canada and Asia. I sent over 60 cold emails to professors in Australia, the United States, and Canada seeking for better education via research and teaching assistantship positions"
