Emmanuel Nworie, a Five star mathematics graduate of the College of Nigeria, Nsukka has stowed a completely subsidized grant at a college in the US to seek after his PhD even without having a graduate degree.

Nworie stowed the grant after a photograph of him cultivating in his town in Ebonyi State attributable to destitution and absence of occupation became famous online via web-based media.

But after my dad passed away, I was deterred because at some point when I was trying to save for undergraduate studies and after two years I couldn’t save enough, so I was frustrate”, Nworie recounts in an interview with The Cable.

In the expressions of Taiwo who made the declaration, “He is going to perhaps the best college on the planet. SMU is a pricey school; more costly than Elite level schools like Harvard and Yale. He will school with individuals from the most extravagant families on the planet. It costs more than $75,000 each year to go to SMU. Emmanuel will not compensation a solitary dollar out of this. Furthermore, he will be given a liberal payment to cook for his everyday costs.
