After graduating with First Class in Math and Finishing His Masters, Nigerian Man Bags PhD Scholarship in US

The man identified as Olusola Dehinsilu said he has been trying for the scholarship since 2018 before finally having a breakthrough. Sharing adorable photos of himself on his LinkedIn page, he urged people to learn from his success story and never give up.

A first class graduate of mathematics has made himself proud after bagging a PhD scholarship in the United States.

A young Nigerian man identified as Olusola Dehinsilu has taken to social media to celebrate his achievement after bagging a PhD scholarship in the United States.

The pioneer first class graduate of mathematics from Olabisi Onabanjo University shared his academic journey on his LinkedIn page, where he disclosed that he will be studying at the University of Texas Arlington.

According to Olusola, he served as an assistant lecturer at The Polytechnic Ibadan during his NYSC.

The young man said he was automatically retained as a Graduate Assistant (GA) in his alma mater in 2018.

Olusola’s post read in part:

“With this opportunity as a GA, I was saddled with the responsibilities of proctoring examinations, grading exam scripts, taking tutorials, assisting the HOD in executing extra-curricular activities, and many more.”

Pursuing his masters of science in math
The young man said he set his focus on developing himself to become a world class mathematician through several opportunities, seminars, online studies and many more.

In his words:

“And I also enrolled for my Masters of Science in Mathematics @ Olabisi Onabanjo University, which I graduated in 2021.”
It didn’t come on a platter of gold.

However, the PhD scholarship didn’t come on a platter of gold as there were many rejections since 2018, according to Olusola.

The young man congratulated himself and urged people experiencing rejections never to give up.

He said:

“After so many rejections since year 2018, I wish to now congratulate myself on this great feat, as I successfully become a University of Texas Arlington Mathematics PhD scholar.

“I wish everyone could pick a point from my story (don’t ever give-up).”
