NLNG Undergraduate Scholarship

Let’s be honest, education in Nigeria is quite cheap. But even though it’s affordable, not everyone can meet the financial requirements, including the tuition and other miscellaneous. Fortunately, as an undergraduate in Nigeria, you have Nigeria LNG’s support. So, we will talk about the NLNG undergraduate scholarship which you can apply for in 2024 as an undergraduate.

Nigeria LNG Limited is quite committed to enhancing education through scholarship programs in the country. So, as a top-performing student, undergraduate, and professional, this one is for you.

NLNG Undergraduate Scholarship

The NLNG Undergraduate Scholarship started in 1998, initially helping students in the company’s host communities. In 2003, it expanded to include students from all over Nigeria.

Up to now, 2,833 undergraduates from various Nigerian universities have benefited from the program, with a total investment exceeding N600 million.

In 2012, the shift to online applications and using social media (like Facebook) for spreading information made the selection process better and more cost-efficient, while also increasing awareness.

The scholarship amount has gone up from N100,000 to N300,000 for each student per academic year, covering the duration of their course.

The NLNG Undergraduate Scholarship Scheme is currently open for applications for this session. Established in 1998 as part of the education support program for host communities, it later opened up to students nationwide. Find out how to apply for the NLNG Undergraduate Scholarship.
