A Nigerian first-class graduate of Mathematics, from the Usman Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, Maniru Ibrahim, has been offered a €20 million worth of scholarship grant for a four-year Ph.D. program at Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research Training in the Foundation of Data Science.
Ibrahim who is presently rounding off his Masters’ program in Theoretical Physics at the International Center for Theoretical Physics in Italy was offered the scholarship in April 2021, after he was carefully screened and shortlisted by CRT management in an interview conducted virtually.
The program is billed to commence in September, where he will be a Ph.D. student at Limerick University, Ireland, with all the expenses to be handled by Ireland Science Foundation Centre. Part of the scholarship allowance includes a yearly allowance of €18,500 for the duration of his four-year program.
The scholarship funds also include travel and accommodation allowances for conferences related to his studies.
According to Ibrahim, he was surprised he was picked for the program after he was rejected by other schools, 20 times.
It is worthy to note that, Ibrahim is the first African to be invited to join the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research Training in the Foundation of Data Science.
