Sometime in January 2017, I was informed about a fully funded scholarship for a masters degree in Scotland, UK. I was so excited and decided to apply for it,because i had always wanted to do my masters but did not have the needed funds.
So I started by applying for admission for my desired course. I got a condition offer admission three times because they needed IELTS exams score as proof for my English proficiency. The time was too short to go get that so i prayed to God to make a way, then they said if i got a C in my English in WAEC, they would accept it. luckily I had a B3, and that how i got the unconditional offer to study MSc Public Health to start in January. I applied for the scholarship and believed God I would be awarded as they would just be sponsoring 8 people out of the thousands that applied.
Unfortunately I did not get the scholarship. I cried and thanked God all the same. I deferred the admission to January even though I did not know I was going to afford the fees but I believed God did not give mt the admission after so many attests for it to just go like that.
November came and there was still no means of sponsorship and I still did not have the money(8 million Naira). I just prayed and told God that my admission expires in January and I have just less than 2 months but I believe he would make a way as he has always done in time past.
Two weeks later, I was informed again that the scholarship was up. the application site was opened for just 4 days and they would be sponsoring just 2 people for January session. immediately i knew it was for me. I knew God had done this for me. So I applied and had FAITH that I was going to get it this time even though they would be sponsoring just 2 people all over the world.
On the 8th of December, I received a call from a UK number. the caller asked for my name and I told her, and she said
“I want to congratulate you, you got the scholarship. We would cover for your full tuition. also you would have a work placement with pay and you would also be an ambassador for the school globally.”
I was left awed for 2 days. All i did was cry. I could not believe that God jumped protocol,changed a system and created a new policy because of me. i got to find out that they have never done a scholarship for January students and the scholarship is done just once a year and it is for fresh graduates (I graduated 2014).
God moved mountains, brought down walls, performed miracle and God made a way. I don’t know how or why but I am eternally grateful. Come January, I would be a masters student studying the course of my dreams Scotland, UK.
Only because God made a way.
Join me say a big thank you to God. He deserves the Glory.
Praise the Lord! God is more than able to give you what you ask of him, and even more!! He knows the timelines more then we do 🙂 Very happy for you! May you be a testimony for our Lord where ever you go! Blessings!
Faithful God! You are a reliable Father. I tap into your blessings for MY OWN scholarship in USA for Fall 2018 too. This popped up on my screen just as I was thinking about it and about to continue working on my application. God is Ever Faithful. Congrats my fellow Nigerian. GOD BE PRAISED!!!
Thank you God for hearing this soul.
Thank you, for sharing your story to encourage others. When we receive our blessings, it is important that we also know, since the beginning of time, God had a plan for our lives. He also had blessings factored in. By prayer, you activated what He already had planned for you.
I pray that you graduate with honors!
PRAISE GOD!!!! What a wonderful testimony of His faithfulness! I pray that you will have many opportunities to share what He’s done for you and bring Him more glory!
And congratulations to you on your new adventure! : )
So amazing. God is good
He is an amazing God. I give Him praise and honor all days of my life
Amen. I was so worried and God showed his grace through this article. As I read it sentence by sentence, my heart uplifted bit by bit because the message was beyond inspiring. I need prayers guys! Have been hoping to study overseas for a master degree level but financial constraint is always a hindrance that keeps me away from my dream. Hope that God will move mountains for me and enroll me into my dream course without restrictions as He is my provider, my savior, and my one and only living God!
I thank God for you, he is the same God YESTERDAY ,TODAY AND FOREVER. what he does for one , he does for many. I know he will grant me this scholarship am asking for in UH 09/2020.
He is able.
God be praised, He will perfect that which he has already begun.
Indeed when we call on God He shows us things we couldn’t even imagine. I am also awaiting for my miracle -same issue of applications and rejection by a sponsor- waiting for a positive and loaded answer for a UK masters as well.
