Coventry University Launches £1 Million Scholarship For African Students

Coventry University on Monday, April 24, launched a £500,000 scholarship offer for international students and announced the establishment of the Africa Institute for Transformational Entrepreneurship (AITE), which aims to boost socio-economic development across the African continent. The offer also includes awards worth over £500,000 available to Nigerian students.
The announcements come as the university’s vice-chancellor and CEO, Professor John Latham, visits Abuja to meet with Coventry’s alumni in Nigeria and explore ways to continue building links between Coventry University and Africa.
In addition to highlighting the scholarship awards, Professor Latham will raise awareness of the new AITE, which seeks to promote transformational entrepreneurship in Africa through education, research and practice-based activity. The institute has been established on the premise that African universities – through the promotion of enterprise and entrepreneurship – have a pivotal role to play in the overall development of Africa.

“African tertiary education should be designed to address the continent’s specific problems. Entrepreneurship-based education and research in Africa’s institutions of higher learning can help address the issues of unemployment and inequality for sustainable socio-economic growth in Africa,” said Prof. John Latham.
Coventry University aims to contribute to all areas of Africa’s development as a founding member of AITE.
