Four young students flew to Russia on Sunday, September 29, 2019. They have just won a scholarship each from the Russian state. Admitted to the University of Finance (one of the largest universities in Moscow), these young laureates are expected to follow a highly prestigious university curriculum in the field of Economics and Finance. It should be noted that prior to the awarding of these scholarships, the beneficiaries were provided with a language immersion in Russian in order to enable them to assimilate the courses that will be taught.
The awarding of these scholarships was possible thanks to the support of Serge Phocas ODUNLAMI, President of the Center for the Development of Business and Cooperation with Russia. Indeed, the man has seen fit to encourage Beninese excellence by putting these talented young people in the good graces of the Russian state. The mediation of Serge Phocas ODUNLAMI has borne fruit and these four students can rejoice to have been sponsored by such a personality whose ambition is to contribute to strengthening cooperation between Africa (Benin in particular) and Russia.
Serge Phocas ODUNLAMI does not intend to stop in such a good way. He is considering other actions with a view to further shine Africa in Russia and Russia in Africa.
