A talented Nigerian scientist named Ngozi Edum, has achieved an impressive feat by securing three scholarships to pursue a Master’s degree in Germany, the Netherlands, and Finland, all at the same time, after experiencing multiple rejections.

Ngozi Edum recently announced her decision to enroll in the University of Eastern Finland’s MSc in European Forestry program with a Fully Funded Erasmus Mundus European Scholarship. The Erasmus Mundus Scholarship provides complete financial support for international students and a monthly stipend ranging from €1400 to €1500.

While recounting her scholarship journey, Ngozi Edum revealed that she received several rejections and was waitlisted for some postgraduate applications. “In 2021, I began the journey again, and I am delighted that I received three positive responses. Instead of just one acceptance, I received three,” she said.

Ngozi explained the three scholarships she secured at the same time. She was awarded the Germany DAAD EPOS Scholarship to study Tropical Forestry at Technische Universität Dresden and the Africa Scholarship Programme to study Forest and Nature Conservation at Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands.

However, Ngozi had to decline two of the scholarship offers and accept the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship to study in Finland. She chose Finland because she was interested in learning about the European Forest and practicing Bioenergy and Bioeconomy, which have the potential to address the climate crisis.

Ngozi Edum expressed her excitement about embarking on a new academic journey at the University of Eastern Finland. “I am thrilled about this new adventure and hope it will be worthwhile. I want to thank everyone who has been part of this journey,” she said
