To contribute to Africa’s sustainable development, Tullow Oil made a generous Grant to The Council for Frontiers of Knowledge (The CFK) to support students to pursue Masters Courses at Makerere University. The Scholarships were awarded to qualifying Ugandan Students to read for a two year Masters Course that commenced in the fourth quarter of last year (2011) at Makerere University in Civil Engineering, Chemistry and Environment.
The Tullow-CFK students and their courses are: Mr. Robert Tumwesige, Ms. Prossy Atolere and Mr. Bwambale Barnabas all MSc. Civil Engineering, Ms. Christine Ainabyona, MSc. Environment and Natural Resources and Mr. John Mugisa, MSc. Chemistry.
12-16 June, 2012, four (4) of the five (5) Masters Tullow Oil-CFK Sponsored students (the 5th had just had a baby), and three (3) supervisors, attended specialised technical presentations and discussions at Tullow Oil in Dublin, Ireland.
Technical presentations by a team of specialists at Tullow Oil, led by Dr. Joe Mongan, were comprehensive and the students and supervisors really benefited. This was also the case for other CFK visitors including Atkins Katusabe and Professors Pamela Weathers, and Fionn Murtagh.
