About the Foundation
The Ajumogobia Science Foundation was formally inaugurated on August 19, 1997 by the Military Administrator of Kano State during the Science Teachers Association of Nigeria, STAN’s 40th anniversary celebration held in Kano. In 2006, the grandchildren of Mr. & Mrs. F.I. Ajumogobia organised a fundraising Memorial Concert as their own initiative towards supporting the Ajumogobia Science Foundation (ASF) and in particular to provide scholarships for outstanding students. The concert is now well-installed on the December agenda of musical activity in Lagos, and the recipients of the first Scholarship awards from this initiative have now entered university and are doing exceedingly well.
