Foundation awards 25 YabaTech students with scholarships to China

The Chief Diana Chen Foundation has launched an incredible journey for 25 excellent students at the Yaba College of Technology (YabaTech) in an effort to empower Nigeria’s future workforce by giving scholarships to improve human capital development.

This initiative claims to transform the career prospects of the institution’s chosen students, bringing them to the forefront of automotive engineering through an 18-month intensive program in China.

This represents a profound commitment to nurturing Nigerian talent and fostering international collaboration in the pursuit of excellence, with proud support from Hangzhou Vocational and Technical College in China, Yaba College of Technology, CIG Motors Company Limited, and the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China.

Selected from the cream of mechanical engineering graduates with a remarkable GPA of 3.0, these fortunate scholars are poised to become trailblazers in the automotive industry, equipped with unparalleled knowledge and skills to drive innovation and progress.

Building upon the illustrious legacy of the Chief Diana Chen Foundation, which has previously hosted the prestigious Schwarzan Scholars, this initiative exemplifies the unwavering dedication to excellence and global citizenship. Past events have showcased the Foundation’s commitment to nurturing brilliance and fostering international collaboration.

It also aligns with the Nigerian government’s agenda for education set forth by the President of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, to foster academic excellence and equip the youth with the much-needed tools to thrive in an ever-evolving global landscape.
