Published

on

The OATS scholarship program is a project established by OATS Experience. OATS Experience is a member of the OATS Consultancy created in January 2020 to focus on corporate and mainstream digital and communication innovations, events and creating experiences for all and sundry within the techentertaiment and education solution.

OATS Experience intends to encourage and ensure that well deserving students despite the economic, social or geographical hardships have equal access to higher education. The program seeks to award credible and qualified young individuals the opportunity to advance their education through a full ride scholarship to local universities with the support of Access Bank Zambia, National Youth Development Council (NYDC), Center for Trade and Policy Development and DCIT (NGO).

The Graduate Project is designed to promote and increase academic excellence for secondary school students seeking higher education, as well as creating an environment that celebrates and promotes hard work across all academic disciplines. On the 23rd of May 2020, OATS Experience officially commenced the Project with the above-mentioned sponsors and partners; Over 3, 000 entries were received from across the country within two weeks of the advertisement, with 42% of the participants being female. The scholarship was very competitive making the process of narrowing down a large applicant pool very challenging.

The selection criteria were based on a number of factors, largely merit. After a long and thorough process of analyzing and evaluating the applications, the selection committee finally settled for the best 100 who were interviewed on 24th and 25th of September 2020 respectfully. Congenially, the interview was designed to determine how many are qualified ethically and morally from the perspective of interrogating their prowess in ethical and logical exchanges of dialogue to test their sincerity and integrity.

The OATS Consultancy, with the facilitation of one of its subsidiary companies, MOZO TV, will be airing the graduate project interviews on MOZO TV from the 7th to the 25th of December 2020. Interviewed candidates are encouraged to watch the show, see how they fared and whether they have been awarded the scholarship. MOZO TV is available on channel 94, on the start times decoder.
