Mamman Marshal Scholarship for Women in Journalism

The scholarship award is specifically to support female students of Journalism or Mass communications in three universities across Nigeria.



The scholarship was instituted in 2017 to celebrate a man, who against the grain of his time educated his daughters; giving them an advantage that sets them apart from their peers. This scholarship award, set up by one of his daughters who has risen to become a reference point, a positive image and an example against a backdrop of impossibilities and impediments in the field of Journalism; is to honor her father and his extraordinary legacy.
