Education is a process of gaining knowledge to develop skills, talents, minds as well as character. It is the first step of people’s empowerment towards making the world a better place.
However, many parents and guardians are unable to give their children proper education due to lack of finance. Hence, Stanbic IBTC has open an application portal for new applicants to register for its 2021 – 2022 University Scholarship Programme; aimed to support the education sector, thereby assisting parents and also guardians.
The foremost financial institution understands that many individuals may not have the funds for tuition. Hence, the scholarship programme was indorsed to support the dreams and aspirations of Nigeria youths. The inaugural edition of the scholarship held last year; aided hundreds of undergraduates who applied all over the country with funding for their tertiary education.
In the inaugural edition, the total scholarship value awarded to successful candidates amounted to over 40 million naira; spread across four years, and disbursed in tranches of 100,000 per academic session.
This is a breath of fresh air for Nigerian youths who require aid with educational funding. It will sure relieve parents and guardians who have financial challenges but desire tertiary education to their wards or children.
The educational initiative designed to assist hard-working students is now accepting new applications for the 2021/2022 academic session.
