ZVISHAVANE – Parul University of India through its international student ambassador, Walter Mabvumba is offering partial scholarships of $500 to $1 500 to 1 000 students from Zimbabwe.
Mabvumba, a Zimbabwean business management student at Parul who is on a tour of high schools in the Midlands Province said that the scholarships will be mainly given to underprivileged students. Mabvumba, a second year student said there were already 58 Zim students studying at Parul under the scholarship scheme.
He visited high schools like Dadaya, Munene, Neta, Sanyati Bapstist, Guinea Fowl high among others, during his tour which is running from 1 November to 20 November 2017.
Mabvumba told The Mirror that he is offering scholarships to over a thousand students who wish to do studies with Parul, one of the world’s best universities.
The total tuition at Parul is $3 000 to $5 000 per year depending on program and this includes food, accomodation and full academic kit.
This is the second time that Mabvumba has visited the country after he initially came with his co-International student ambassador Petros Kanyama to launch an inspirational book called “Just a thought”
“I am targeting all A Level students in Zimbabwe in urban and rural areas. I have embarked on this programme because there is a lot that Zimbabwean students can learn from a university like Parul which they can use back home to develop up our country,” he said.
Mabvumba recently launched an Ecell Platform where students can come with business proposals and they are connected to the business community for financial support. Many students start earning money while still at the University because of such business projects.
Mabvumba also got the opportunity to meet traditional leaders who assisted him in identifying poor but intelligent pupils whom he will assist with scholarships.
Mabvumba and Kanyama’s outstanding performance at the university saw them rising to become the only black International ambassadors whose privileges include adding input in the day-to-day running of the institution.
