How You Can Nail Online Opportunity And Scholarship Mentoring

Published

on

In 2019, while working hard to secure a prestigious scholarship for a foreign Masters, I reached out to a previous winner of a MasterCard Scholarship for African Scholars at UK, who was studying my intended specialization (Master of Science, Africa, and International Development) via LinkedIn. Basically, I went to the scholarship site of the university, at the alumni page, found his profile which matched what I intended to study and sent a Premium-activated LinkedIn message, asking him to hand-hold me via my application process. This MasterCard scholar had no prior relationship with me, did not know me and we had no mutual friend. In Nigerian Twitter parlance, I was “shooting my shot” in his message box (lol). But somehow, I was really optimistic that he would come through for me. I mean, why not! We were Africans; we both want to better our lives and that of the African continent. What better way for him to demonstrate his commitment to Africa’s development other than by helping another Young African reach the same height as his (premium entitlement, loooool).

After two days or so, he read my message, viewed my LinkedIn profile and IGNORED me entirely. Zero reply. But I continued waiting for his reply even as the submission date approached. One week to submission was when it dawned on me that I would not get any hand-holding and I moved on.

What do you think that I did wrong? Read more…
