The Jim Ovia Foundation Leaders Scholarship (JOFLS) Fund is a partnership between Jim Ovia Foundation (JOF) and Africa America Institute (AAI). This fund is backed by the $2 million pledge made by Mr. Jim Ovia, Founder/Chairman, Jim Ovia Foundation during AAI’s 33rd Annual Gala in September 2017.
The Fund offers full scholarship to 35 Africans in STEM courses through two select prestigious universities. Twenty-Five percent of these 35 would be Nigerians.
According Mr. Ovia, “… we need to collectively empower young people and create a network of future leaders and game changers that can propel our continent. This JOFLS Fund and partnership with AAI are part of my continued dedication.”
The JOFLS Fund is currently offered through Ashesi University and Covenant University for high-achieving but under-resourced students. The vision of this fund is to support these students through the entire course of acquiring the necessary skills for their chosen dynamic and innovation-driven careers.
