“I would like to express my gratitude to the wonderful and generous OCI Foundation. Your generosity is allowing me to make my goals and dream a reality by making me one of the recipients of 2019 Cyfed Undergraduate Scholarship. You have lightened my financial burden, and this allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. On behalf of my family and myself, I pour out my humble thanks, and say, “thank you again to Dr Onyebuchi Chris (the OCI Founder) and others that made it possible for me”. For this wonderful act of kindness, you have my deepest gratitude. I hope one day, I will be able to help students achieve their goals, just as you have helped me”.

“This is a great program, I must say. I cannot express how thankful I am to have been chosen as a scholarship recipient. My education has always been of upmost importance to me, and to be rewarded in this way is very humbling. This scholarship is an absolute answer to prayers, as life does not always go as we plan. I know that the Lord always has things in his control, and I believe he used you all to bless me in a time of need. I will forever be grateful for this gift, and I cannot thank you enough for that. Jeremiah 29:11 says it best”.
