Meet members of the Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows Alumni Association in Nigeria (COSFAN)

The CSC Alumni Team invite current Nigerian Scholars to join a meet and greet event co-organised with members of the local CSC alumni association in Nigeria, the Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows Alumni Association Nigeria (COSFAN), and the British Council in Nigeria.

The meet and greet will provide an opportunity for current Scholars to meet members of the alumni association, find out more about the association and how to stay connected post-Scholarship or Fellowship, as well as ask for advice and guidance on post-study experiences for those coming to the end of their studies.  

The CSC’s alumni associations are coordinated by alumni volunteers who are responsible for organising a range of local events and activities which encourage networking and ongoing professional development. In certain countries, alumni associations are supported by the British Council (on behalf of the CSC), which assists in establishing and strengthening these groups.

Members of the association who will be leading the event are:

Abiola Adimula, COSFAN President (2010 Commonwealth Professional Fellow)

Dr Cyril Akagwu, COSFAN Vice-President (2013 Commonwealth Scholar)

Dr Ekundayo Stephen Samuel, COSFAN General Secretary (2017 Commonwealth Split-site Scholar)
