The NIFESS Undergraduate Scholarship and Grant Trust Fund is a financial support system established by private organizations and NGOs. Its goal is to help 10,000 students and professionals studying social sciences and related subjects in Nigeria. This is because there isn’t enough financial support for these students in Nigerian universities. The NSGTF serves as a platform where members of NIFESS, including students and professionals, can access free financial aid for each academic session.
NIFESS Undergraduate Scholarship has several benefits:
- Financial Help for Undergraduates: Get support during your undergraduate studies.
- Funding for Final Year Research Projects: Money specifically for your research project in your last year.
- Support for Post-Graduate Studies: If you’re pursuing post-graduate studies, there’s help for you too.
- Money for Post-Graduate Research: Up to 1,000,000 NGN for your post-graduate research, depending on your financial needs and approval from the NIFESS Scholarship and Grant Board.
- Funds for Doctoral Research: Up to 3,000,000 NGN for your doctoral research, subject to approval from the NIFESS Scholarship and Grant Board.
