However, she could not enroll in any of the institutions despite their outstanding energy law programs because of financial challenges.


Lolade said she even received a 60% tuition scholarship and secured a loan to attend George Washington University but unfortunately, her visa application was denied. Despite the challenges she faces, Lolade said she persevered and remained determined with a positive mindset.

Her perseverance and unwavering determination paid off as she was awarded the two full-tuition scholarships for her master’s in International Energy Law and Policy (LL.M) by the Commonwealth and the Steve Weston Trust Scholarship.

Lolade said the opportunity will make her delve deeper into the complex legal and policy aspects of the global energy landscape. She expressed her gratitude to everyone who supported him during the process of the application
