Student wins 2019 Nom Habu scholarship


Rhoda Aba Dadzie-Dennis

We would like to congratulate the latest recipient of the Nom Habu scholarship, Rhoda Aba Dadzie-Dennis, who is an Actuarial Science graduate from Ghana. She joined Lancaster in September this year to begin her MSc Quantitative Finance course, and we wish her all the best with her studies.

On receiving her award, Rhoda said: “My journey to Lancaster began with my quest for a top school in the UK that could deliver a Masters programme with a diverse selection of nationalities. Searching online brought me various options, however, quantitative finance at a prestigious university like Lancaster was hard to turn down. Lancaster, like many universities, has an informative website that has a lot information and it was through searching on there that I got to know about the Nom Habu and Departmental Scholarships

It was a great feeling to receive these scholarships and I was so excited to know that I had been awarded them. It is an opportunity that I know is really rare, so I was really grateful to be awarded this honor. I am looking forward with optimism towards this year knowing that with hard work and diligence, nothing shall be insurmountable.

I would encourage anyone who is interested to apply and take part in this wonderful programme when given the opportunity."
