I am young guy from Ethiopia. I obtain Diploma in Agriculture from Adama University with GPA of 4.0 out of 4. I have more than 2 years of work experience in technical assistance at Dilla University, School of Agriculture meanwhile; i have great interest to have my Bachelor degree in Agricultural related fields. But to realize my interest my financial status is constraint

You know that industrialized nations have emitted for more greenhouse gas emissions. In contradictory developing countries due to small number of professional in Agriculture there is inadequate agricultural productivity in our country .Our country Ethiopia is now in jumping one step from a line with industrialized countries. So what needs at first? It’s doubtless as it is professional of Agricultural Sciences. Considering all factor above, I believe that if I am trained through undergraduate scholarship in Agricultural science I can do my best with all maximum efforts for the benefit of my country to whom I have been working. I look forward to a favorable reply to bring my dream in to reality. I believe it will come. Thanks.

I am an energetic outgoing gentleman and a product of Université de Bouaké, Côte d’Ivoire, final term of Master of Arts student in American Civilization and Literature with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in and a Diploma in Foreign Languages (French, English, and Spanish). As a graduate in English studies with my very strong French educational background,
I have acquainted myself with a range of skills that would allow me to blend with the organization’s culture, and propel the team to new height of success.
Apart from being a proactive learner, I was actively involved in extra-curricular activities inside and outside of campus. I was in the chairman of the brightest English club on campus. Additionally, I am practicing as a professional French teacher since 2010 in many Ghanaian schools and environments like Holy Child Senior High School, Cape Coast in the Central Region; and Chapel Hill School, Takoradi in the Western Region.
My enthusiastic involvement in many professional and academic activities has served me well in nurturing hardworking, humility as well as my leadership and communication skills, which are essential to succeed in making a meaningful and significant contribution to the expectations of any honorable Institution.

Yours sincerely,

James Solomon Murray says:

I have been teaching in the interior of my home county Grand Bassa, for a long period of time since I left high in the late 80’s. I studied elementary education at Bishop John Collins Teacher College and obtained a diploma. I studied christian education and Biblical Theology at the Global University on 10th St.and got a diploma. am I qualified for your scholarship program? I am presently working on a self motivated educational program for Liberian villages where there are no schools and the children of school going ages are wasting in complete ignorance and illiteracy. This program is called EVAT, meaning Every Village A Teacher.
Can I obtain a scholarship to build my capacity in education and help my native Liberia? James Solomon Murray, Buchanan City, Liberia.

Adama Sarnor says:

My Name is Adama Sarnor, from Liberia. I want to obtain a master in Agriculture especially food crops production, I have interest in agriculture because Liberia is a Low Income Food Deficit Country (LIFDC) in the World.
in urban areas (52%) and average households spend (53%) of their total cash expenditure on food; primarily rice which is the Liberian staple food. Despite a recent steady upturn in agriculture production since the end of the war, Liberia remains a food-deficit country, depending highly on international food imports and vulnerable to economic shock. Agriculture markets remain poorly integrated especially in the rural areas, exacerbating poverty and food insecurity. Consequently, food insecurity afflicts 40.9% of the population, while chronic malnutrition rates remain at critical levels. If I am opportune to get scholarship from the Australian Awards Scholarships program, I will be able to use the knowledge skills to the agriculture sector of my country so as to increase food production and reduce hunger in my country (Liberia)
