SHE SOARS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The Christopher Kolade Foundation SHE Soars Scholarship Program provides need-based financial sponsorship and mentorship to female graduates of public secondary schools in Nigeria who have secured admission into a Nigerian public university.

SHE Soars launched in 2019 with five SHE Soars Scholars benefitting from the scholarship program.  The maiden class of scholars are currently enrolled in the University of Lagos, University of Ilorin, Federal University of Technology, Owerri, and Ekiti State University, and are studying Law, Accounting, Agricultural Economics and Extension, and Biology.

Our maiden class of sponsors includes women from the financial, legal, SME sectors, and other industries. To facilitate a mentoring relationship between sponsors and scholars, the Foundation puts effort into matching scholars with sponsors whose careers are somewhat related to their courses of study.
