Nigerian man bags PhD scholarship in U.S. after graduating with first class in math



A Nigerian man who graduated with a first class in mathematics has secured a PhD scholarship in the United States.

Olusola Dehinsilu took to social media to celebrate his achievement after bagging a scholarship to do his PhD programme in US.

The math graduate from Olabisi Onabanjo University shared his academic journey on his LinkedIn page, where he disclosed that he will be studying at the University of Texas Arlington.

According to Olusola, he served as an assistant lecturer at The Polytechnic Ibadan during his NYSC.

Olusola’s LinkedIn post read in part: “With this opportunity as a GA, I was saddled with the responsibilities of proctoring examinations, grading exam scripts, taking tutorials, assisting the HOD in executing extra-curricular activities, and many more.”

The young man said he set his focus on developing himself to become a world class mathematician through several opportunities, seminars, online studies and many more.

In his words: “And I also enrolled for my Masters of Science in Mathematics @ Olabisi Onabanjo University, which I graduated in 2021.”

However, the PhD scholarship didn’t come on a platter of gold as there were many rejections since 2018. He then encouraged people experiencing rejections never to give up.

He said: “After so many rejections since year 2018, I wish to now congratulate myself on this great feat, as I successfully become a University of Texas Arlington Mathematics PhD scholar.

“I wish everyone could pick a point from my story (don’t ever give-up).”
