Oulianovie Guessom Kamgue from Cameroon is currently, among other things, a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine of the University of Buea. She holds a PhD in Immunology-Hematology, and Toxicology, as well as a Master’s degree in Animal Physiology, specialising in Analgesia, from the University of Dschang in Cameroon.
She has been in receipt of the Global Learning Scholarship Program (GLSP) at Informa Connect. Oulianovie is also involved in various organisations, like the African Women Forum (AWF), she is a member of the ‘Association of Commonwealth Universities’ (ACU) Commonwealth Climate Resilience, also of the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing (OWSD), and the Cameroon Professional Research Oriented Women Network (CaPROWN), just to name a few.
Oulianovie decided to become an Africademics Scholarship Ambassador because she desires to collaborate with people from other backgrounds, put her knowledge to use, and also be able to learn from those with which she will be collaborating.
In 10 years’ time, she wishes to have reached the rank of full professor and to have inspired other women and girls in science through her work. She wishes to pass on the spirit of leadership to as many young people as possible, which will push them to undertake and innovate in science while remaining humble and listening to others. A fun fact many people might not know about Oulianovie is that she loves to dance in front of the mirror.
Welcome to the Africademics Ambassador Programme, Oulianovie!
The Scholarship Ambassador Programme
Through the Scholarship Ambassador Programme Africademics trains volunteers from across Africa to become scholarship advisors and mentors. Ambassadors complete a 4-month online course with virtual lectures, case studies and additional activities. Once they have successfully graduated, our Scholarship Ambassadors offer personal support, advice and mentorship for scholarship seekers and applicants in and from Africa.
Our 2022 Ambassador cohort started their training in April 2022 and we are thrilled to have over 90 students and scholars from across the African continent on board this year. In 2021, we welcomed our first cohort of 30 Scholarship Ambassadors who completed their training in November 2021. They now offer free scholarship consultations, mentorship and application assistance for scholarship seekers in and from Africa on a regular basis.
