How To Get Scholarships In Nigeria

Education in Nigeria is gradually become an expensive luxury for more than half the population in Nigeria. BBC’s questionable report shows that 61 percent of Nigerians are living in poverty with almost 100 million people living on less than a $1.

Now the question is, if we still believe education is the way forward how will the 61 percent afford to pay for education that the fees are always on the rise?. One very good way of paying the bill is by getting scholarships.

They have harmonized the information required for most scholarship applications. This reduces the burden of filling new applications each time there is a scholarship announcement. All you need to do is click apply.


This is a Site that regularly post information on available scholarships,  provide relevant admission counseling, study materials, documents, success-oriented information and general supports needed by candidates seeking admission into the University, Polytechnic or College.


Although not as good looking as the two mentioned above in terms of user interface but they are focused mainly on Scholarships for Undergraduate, Msc Scholarships, PhD Scholarships and scholarship past questions. This is also a very good site to get information.
