Nigerian Mathematics Genius Gets €20m PhD Scholarship Award

Here is the story of the brilliant Nigerian Mathematics genius who got a phD Scholarship offer worth €20m.


The promiscuous young man identified as maniru Ibrahim, is a Nigeria first class graduate of mathematics, and he has been fully offered to further his PhD studies for free at an Ireland based university known as an Limerick University.

The scholarship awarded to him is a €20 million funded program by the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Centre for Research Training (CRT) in Foundations of Data Science.

The programme provides a tax-free stipend of €18, 500 per annum for 4years and additional allowance for travel and accommodation costs related to visits to CRT partner institutions, industry and enterprise partners, international collaborators, and attendance at national and international conferences.


Ibrahim who graduated in 2017 from Usman Danfodio University, in Sokoto, Northwest Nigeria, got the scholarship offer in April after he was interviewed virtually and shortlisted by CRT management.

The genius is currently rounding off his masters program in Theoretical physics in Italy as the phD programme is expected to start September.

The program is the first of its kind and he is the only African among the shortlisted candidates. It’s a program about industry. ICT related problems will be dealt with in order to make life and Technology easier.


Congratulations to him!
