The MTN Foundation has officially announced a call for applications for its annual undergraduate scholarship award. The award seeks to recognise and reward high-performing students in Nigerian public tertiary institutions. It targets two categories of students – undergraduates in Science and Technology-related courses and blind students in any field of study.
According to Odunayo Sanya, Executive Secretary of MTN Foundation, “ We believe in the creativity and resilience of the Nigerian youth. They have the potential to change the world and put Nigeria on the global map in positive ways as we can already see. The role of quality education in empowering the youth for exploits cannot be overemphasised. We are glad to stand with them through the MTN scholarships.” To date, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to 4,590 students.
To apply for the MTN Foundation Scholarship, applicants studying Science and Technology-related courses in any Nigerian public tertiary institution (universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education) and blind students are required to attain a set Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) score.
