    Hi, my name is Princewill Edwin’s. I hold a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from a Nigerian university with a cumulative gradepoint of 4.06 on graduation. Transcripts and recommendation letters from senior lecturers are also intact. I am dreaming of pursuing a masters in environmental science or any environmental management, toxicology or policy discipline in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia or Australia on full funded scholarship as I and family can’t afford it presently. Kindly contact me if you have a scholarship that’s full funded on my discipline.
