DAC Scholarship Foundation Essay Competition

I was surfing the Internet in December 2013 when I bumped into the Facebook Page, David Abiodun Coker Scholarship Foundation. I read the page’s October 31 2013 status update and got angry:

“The scholarship is closing in 10 hours and unfortunately no one has submitted their application yet.”

The scholarship essay competition is here again. If you didn’t have the information last year, now you do. Will you take action? Or will you miss out?

The Family of late Pastor Engr. (Dr.) David Abiodun Coker will award a scholarship, in the amount of 100,000.00 Naira each, to two Nigerian, Engineering student in any Nigerian University.
