Undergraduate students in Nigerian universities who are qualified have been asked to apply for the Jim Ovia Scholars Program.
Applicants are expected to go through the application guide here https://www.jimoviafoundation.org/application-guide to see what they are expected to have as requirements.
The Jim Ovia Scholars Program was founded since 1998. It is fully funded by Mr Jim Ovia to provide financial aid to outstanding Nigeria youths.
The scholarship was previously known as the MUSTE scholarship.
Those who qualify for the programme would be supported for their undergraduate and graduate study for the duration of their course. They will receive support for tuition and maintenance allowances.
The scheme offers an average of 100 opportunities each year for new applicants while renewing applicants are supported annually, conditional on meeting all eligible requirements of the scholarship.
Since October 2010, Mr Ovia has invested over 100 Million Naira in the program to support 1500 beneficiaries and counting.
The scholarship is open to all potential students of Nigerian citizenship. One hundred (100) awardees are selected each year from a pool of eligible applicants.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of personal intellectual ability, leadership capability and a desire to contribute to society at large to improve the lives of others.
