Caroline Odunola Memorial Fellowship

Applications are invited for  researchers currently registered for PhD programmes in a Nigerian university into a training and mentoring scheme aimed at supporting the career aspirations of PhD researchers in various disciplines. This inaugural call is aimed at PhD researchers of Oyo state origin. It is expected that subsequent calls will expand the reach to support students from other parts of the country. This scheme has been launched by Dr Seun Kolade (with support from other siblings) in memory of his late mother, Mrs Caroline Odunola Kolade, a dedicated mother and community-oriented woman who left behind an inspiring legacy of commitment to life-long learning and personal development.

This fellowship includes an annual stipend of N20,000 to support the PhD studies of successful applicants for up to three years, a targeted and personalised training programme to support the skill development portfolio of the PhD researchers, and a mentoring programme that, among others, links individual fellows with established academic/professionals in their fields.

In order to apply, complete the form in this link and submit on or before Friday 19th July, 2019. The awards are expected to take effect from 1st September 2019. For further inquiries please contact
