To commemorate this , scholarship awards were presented to brilliant students across the country. The process entailed application by various candidates. After the application process,two FUTA students were selected but ASUU FUTA Chapter decided to key into the gesture and extended same to FUTA students and six of them were selected for the award ”

 

The Chairman explained that what ASUU is doing is part of its Corporate Social Responsibility because its core mandate is teaching, research and community service.
