About The Scholarship
The scholarship award is specifically to support female students of Journalism or Mass communications in three universities across Nigeria.
The scholarship was instituted in 2017 to celebrate a man, who against the grain of his time educated his daughters; giving them an advantage that sets them apart from their peers.
This scholarship award, set up by one of his daughters who has risen to become a reference point, a positive image, and an example against a backdrop of impossibilities and impediments in the field of Journalism; is to honor her father and his extraordinary legacy.
In 2018, another set of 6 female students from these three universities was awarded the scholarship from the 2019 academic year to the completion of their first degree. In this third year of the scholarship, a new set of 6 female students will be awarded the Mamman Marshal Scholarship for Women in Journalism.
