Ghanaian Student Wins a Scholarship to Study Food Science in France

Godslove Boadu, a Ghanaian national who plans to study Food Science in France, is the winner of the 2021 Study a Master’s in Europe Scholarship awarded by educations.com.

 

Godslove has been awarded €5000 towards her tuition fees for her Master of Science and Engineering degree in Food Science at Junia ISA, Graduate School of Agriculture and Bioengineering in Lille, Northern France.

 

Godslove interned at the Ghana Standards Authority, before working in food safety and quality assurance at Project Peanut Butter, an NGO that helps malnourished children in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. It was through this work that Godslove was inspired to deepen her knowledge of nutrition initiatives. Godslove wants to do this in a multicultural environment to bring new perspectives into her work.

 

This has led her to decide to study abroad in France, one of the top five places to study abroad in Europe. Godslove’s choice was also motivated by France being home of the Paris Agreement and one of the biggest landmarks in the fight against climate change.

 

Having grown up in Ghana, where climate change and the welfare of rural farming communities is an issue, Godslove has been inspired to undertake her Master’s program alongside other keen industry professionals from around the world. Godslove will graduate in 2023.

 

Godslove’s story and future plans align with the mission of the scholarship, which seeks to recognize Master’s students who study in Europe to become globally-minded leaders.

 

“We are tremendously inspired by Godslove’s passion for her subject and the thought that she put into her country and program of choice. In a few short years, she has approached food science from multiple viewpoints, always with the aim of helping make the world a better place: whether through ensuring food safety, providing nutritious food to undernourished children, or developing and promoting climate-friendly foods. We are confident that she will become a leader in her field who brings a global perspective to her work,” says Abby Guthrie, Communications Manager of educations.com.
