Lady Who Graduated with 2:2, Beats Over 50,000 Applicants to Win 2 Prestigious Scholarships

CURSORY: A brilliant Nigerian girl has made history as she wins two prestigious scholarships, beating a total of 51,840 applicants worldwide despite graduating with a second-class lower.

Oluwafunmilayo Oni, a young student from Nigeria, has won both the UK Government Chevening Scholarship and a scholarship from the government of Ireland on the same day, outperforming over 50,000 other students.

Oni is part of the only 2% of 51,840 applicants to win the United Kingdom’s Chevening Scholarship in 2022. She also won the Irish Government Scholarship despite having a lower second-class Bachelor’s degree.

She celebrated her achievements in her recent LinkedIn post, where she shared her double blessings after weeks of doubting herself due to her Bachelor’s degree classification.

“For years, I doubted my ability to bag any scholarship for my Master’s degree because many scholarship granting organizations often stated clearly that they would rather a minimum of 2:1,” Oni wrote.

She recalled being denied a scholarship even though they said her leadership experience was “superb and excellent” because her 2:2 degree did not meet the academic criteria.

Undeterred, she kept trying to apply for several scholarships, which eventually led to great results.

“This year, I was awarded the Chevening Scholarship and the Irish Aid scholarship on the same day. See God!” she said, noting that she now had to decide which one to choose.

She hopes her experience encourages people in a similar situation as her not to give up despite the difficulties.

“So, if you have a 2:2 like me, the journey might be slightly tougher but the world is your oyster! Apply!!!!!”, she said
