It should be noted that the Cyfed-Bradley Hope (CBH) Undergraduate Scholarship Award is one of the six scholarship schemes of the OCI Foundation. It was established in January 2020, following the sad passing of Bradley John Hope (July 18th, 2003 to December 8th, 2019). Brad was a kind-hearted, 16-year old Australian who tragically lost his life following a freak domestic accident in December 8th, 2019. His dad, Mr Troy Hope and the entire Hope Family (see the picture below), in conjunction with the OCI Foundation, established the CBH in his memory. Details of the CBH scholarship can be found HERE.

Even though the OCI Foundation had postponed the finalisation of the CBH scholarship since the applications closed on April 26th, 2020, the decision to proceed with the completion of this year’s program has become necessary as Brad’s first death anniversary is only 4 weeks away (on December 8th, 2020). His family needs to have this year’s scholarship program concluded ahead of the event marking this first memorial anniversary.

Applicants to the other pending undergraduate scholarship of the OCI Foundation, the Cyfed Undergraduate Scholarship, will not affected by this announcement. As such, the OCI Foundation’s decision to suspend the processing of their own applications until one month after all tertiary institutions in Nigeria resume, is still in place.

May Bradley Hope’s gentle soul, continue to rest in peace. Amen.
