Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG) invites applications from interested first-year undergraduates in Nigerian Universities for its 2020 Scholarship for Undergraduate Award.
The Scheme seeks to promote academic excellence by supporting top-grade Nigeria students through tertiary institutions.
This was founded as a critical component of our education intervention programme for our host communities in 1998 and was opened up to the rest of Nigeria in 2003.
A total of 3,416 undergraduates from various universities in Nigeria have benefited from the scheme and N768.9m ($2.5130m) million has been invested on it . The introduction of online application and use of social media (Facebook) for information dissemination in 2012 made the selection process more efficient and cost effective, and increased awareness of the Scheme.
