About the donors
The family and friends of Ayodele Jegede established this scholarship to celebrate his life and honor his memory. Ayodele graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences with degrees in philosophy and political science. He went on to earn an M.A. in international relations from Brown University and worked briefly at U.S. Bank Cincinnati before proceeding to Chicago-Kent College of Law, where he focused on tax law. He was only one semester away from graduating when he passed away in December 2011 at the age of 29. He lived up to his name, which in Yoruba means “joy.”
