Feedback on the Tullow-Oil Scholarchips

Posted by Mark

The generous funding by Tullow Oil worked out really well. The Council for Frontiers of Knowledge managed to receive multiple submissions, and through a very rigorous review process, The CFK Selection and Evaluation Tullow Oil-CFK Scholarship Committee (Chaired by Professor Weathers and with Members: Professor Murtagh, Professor Emnéus, Professor Hasan and Professor Vadgama) acting on behalf of The CFK Board, awarded five (5) two-year Masters Scholarships.

The Tullow-CFK students and their courses: Mr. Robert Tumwesige, Ms. Prossy Atolere and Mr. Bwambale Barnabas are all MSc. Civil Engineering, Ms. Christine Ainabyona, MSc. Environment and Natural Resources and Mr. John Mugisa, MSc. Chemistry.

With an excellent monitoring and reporting system guiding the entire Programme, the Tullow Oil-CFK Fellows are progressing very well with their studies at Makerere University and we hope they can present some of their work at the upcoming CFK meeting in November 2012.
