LG Electronics Awards Scholarships to Students

LG Electronics, a global leader in consumer electronics and mobile communications, has kept its promise by awarding scholarships to another set of meritorious students of the faculty of Engineering of the University of Lagos; this is in line with its drive to contribute to raising the standard of education in Nigeria.

The sponsorship event  is conducted annually and organised by LG as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities with the primary aim of empowering young people as well as developing the educational sector, ensuring that youths who are the future leaders  are adequately empowered and given financial support in order to enable them achieve their dreams and aspirations.

Speaking at the award ceremony, the Managing Director, LG Electronics West Africa Operations, Deog Jun Kim, said, “This scholarship is being awarded to 10 students of 400 and 500 levels from the Faculty of Engineering who emerged as best students after a careful selection by both the university authority and LG Electronics based on their Grade Points of 4.0 to 5.0, which made them stand out from their colleagues.”

LG Electronics’ partnership with the University of Lagos has been longstanding as the company has continually contributed to the growth of the university with its donation of the LG Design Lab and its first and continuous initiative of scholarship awards programme.
