Part of the objective of the Vincent Kewala Nyambi Foundation is to support and encourage the next generation of scientists in Cameroon. The Dr. Robert Gallo Award for Academic Excellence in Science for high schools was established to achieve that objective. The Vincent Kewala Nyambi Foundation will work with the Cameroon General Certificate of Education (G.C.E) Board, and the Francophone equivalent of GCE A-Levels The “Baccalaureate” to identify 6 students who scored the maximum points in all science subjects in this high school examination and as a result will be the recipient of this prestigious Award. The criteria of selection is purely based on academic merit. They will be awarded a Trophy and monetary scholarship award of $250.00 each to assist in their academic pursuits towards science.
