African Community of Practice Outstanding Achievement Award

Prof. Abiodun Alao, Head of Programmes at ALC-King's, with some of the winners

The African Leadership Centre (ALC) at King's College London is pleased to announce this years winners of the African Community of Practice Outstanding Achievement Award, one of whom - Wadeisor Rukato - is  currently undertaking the ALC Peace and Security Fellowship for African Scholars. Each winner has been awarded £500 or £1000 to be spent on activities related to their academic areas of interest. The award offers an opportunity for the recipient to carry out an activity that enhances their academic journey that would otherwise not have been possible.

This year's winners were chosen as:

Wadeisor Rukato, Zimbabwean, African Leadership Centre;
Adeoti Dipelou, Nigerian, African Leadership Centre;
Ife Okafor, Nigerian, War Studies
Bianca Moffett,  South African, Global Mental Health                    
Darryn Williams,  South African,  Global Mental Health                       
Olakunle Oginni, Nigerian, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience
Nabila Elshawarbi, Egyptian, International Political Economy
Nicholas Vintcent Golding, South African, International Political Economy

This outstanding achievement award is open to African students studying any BA, MA or PhD programme at King's. This award has been made possible by the generous donation of Richemont International, who have sponsored this award for the previous three years. Through the ALC and African Community of Practice (ACP), departments were chosen across King's who have been particularly active in Africa-related activity. Faculty from those departments then selected high-achieving African students worthy of this award using criteria which included: most improvement over the course of study; highest performance; and most impressive student engagement, among others.

Very many congratulations to all this years winners from all at ALC!
