Who We Are and What We Do
Enabling creative thinking...
The Omotere-Comfort Engineering, Science and Art scholarship is in memory of a long legacy of educators and education enthusiasts in the founders background. The fund was established in 2013.
Our goal is to motivate and prepare students for the exciting world of STEAM disciplines.
For the year 2020, the scholarship will focus its efforts on STEAM fairs. Kids 8 and up will participate in a day's workshop and create using STEAM kits.
In 2021, we are launching our Inventors Club focused on long-term, impactful knowledge sharing and skill-building.
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
How we help
One of our goals at The Omotere - Comfort Scholarship is to fund tuition payments at schools worldwide.
We look at regions and areas where we can help develop the capacity for inclusion, awareness, and immersion in the sciences and arts. This sometimes happens in areas least expected! For example:
In 2013, we began funding tuition for high achieving students at The Cosmopolitan College of Arts, Science & Technology in Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. We are constantly expanding and assessing avenues to impact the lives of children and young adults positively in the area of STEAM.
How it works
Each year, recipients of the award are picked in the areas of Engineering, Science, and Arts. Winners of the award have gone through a number of activities and tests and are chosen based on the ingenuity of the kids' interpretation of the projects set before them.
The award pool for that year is divided up into equal portions for the Art, Science and Engineering recipients. Projects are chosen every year by a panel of educators and donors. Engineering projects do not involve math alone but encompass a wide array of Engineering and critical thinking exercises. Art projects are designed to bring out the artistic talents in children and the Science projects are to peak their imaginations and develop their scientific reasoning skills.
The goal is to motivate and prepare students for the exciting world of disciplines out there.
Tuition awards are applied toward the following semester's tuition payment.

It takes a village to raise a child...
The Omotere - Comfort Engineering, Science and Art Scholarship is currently privately funded. Future plans will involve the acceptance of public donations through our foundation. However, we welcome volunteer hours to do so many other things such as prepare projects; envision the ideas for each year's competition; select each year's recipients; and facilitate the competitions on the school premises or at STEAM workshops.
You do not have to be physically present to participate in some of our volunteer activities!
Please contact us if you wish to volunteer your time towards this wonderful cause.
