Why this Training?

International scholarships help individuals from the remotest part of the world to receive top-quality education in world-class universities, therefore, transforming their lives forever. Access to global opportunities is levelled, thereby, fulfilling SDG-4 (Access to Quality Education), particularly Target 4B (Scholarships for Citizens of Developing Countries). However, these scholarships are fiercely contested for before a set of winners are carefully selected by scholarship sponsors. No matter how relatively strong your qualifications are, if you submit a badly written scholarship essay, you will not be selected. Therefore, it is important for you to join a live class where you will learn the mechanistic process of constructing award-winning essays.

What Past Students are Saying

Ifunanya Stella Ezeoye

I wish to thank #Illumania for the 3-Day #virtual scholarship workshop live classes held between 5-7th of June 2020. The workshop was given in a very virtually appealing form. Even in the space of that relatively short time, Dr. Babajide Milton Macaulay managed to achieve a warm and genuine relationship with the scholars making one feel relaxed about airing problems and helping us arrive at possible solutions. It really motivated me to change my approach to writing Scholarship essays. I found the sessions very interesting, useful and informative. I feel more positive and optimistic now and I would recommend this session unequivocally to any scholar in doubt on how to navigate through Scholarship essays as it will enhance their understanding about the essay writing.

The Illumania workshop exceeded my expectations. I learnt the art of scholarship essay writing, essential ingredients in an essay, compact delivery, avoidable potholes and word count management. The organisers are scholars themselves with many years of experience at what they do. They are skilled, very proficient, detailed, experienced and professional. They are not just talkers and quite frankly their deliverables are highly subsidised. I guarantee, your next application after this training would bring you the much anticipated congratulatory email. I consider myself fortunate to have been a participant. I really will consider reapplying for a refresher course. I recommend for all levels of scholarship applicant.

It was an excellent 3-days webinar with practical exercises and worthwhile information. I have a new understanding of why I did not win a scholarship in the past year and how to write better essays. I am confident that with my acquired skill in writing, I will win a scholarship. I would enthusiastically recommend this seminar to anyone that wants to get a “yes”.
