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.

Don’t bother applying because you won’t magically be selected. NLNG takes your eligibility seriously, and there’s a system in place that automatically filters out ineligible applications. Therefore, your time and effort will be in vain since it may not even get to the human review stage.

We have seen situations where students have mistakenly missed out on the scholarship despite being selected. This is usually as a result of not checking your email. Use your primary email for the registration, and check it very often.

You can check your email once a day or at least 3 to 4 times a week. Over here, we monitor our emails multiple times daily due to engagements, and things we need to look out for.
