List of Nigeria LNG (NLNG) Awards and Educational Endowment Funds for Nigerian Undergraduate students

The Nigeria LNG project is considered one of the most important economic projects being carried out in Nigeria. The project is a vital part of the Federal Government's diversification programme and has already generated significant revenues and foreign exchange for the nation.

As a truly Nigerian Company that is proudly world-class in operations, we are committed to building a better Nigeria and, in particular, the development of Rivers state and our host Communities through various programmes, schemes, projects and interventions.

b). Integrated Top-Up Scheme
The Integrated Top-Up Scheme (I.T.S) formerly known as the Bonny Education Endowment Fund (B.E.E.F) started over 13 years ago as an intervention by Nigeria LNG Limited to stem the mass movement of Bonny based teachers in Post-Primary schools from the Classrooms to Construction sites which was the case during the construction phase of the NLNG plant site. It involves the payment of a quarterly top-up allowance to Principals, Academic and non-Academic staff of Government Post-Primary Schools on Bonny Island. At present, the scheme has been extended to also support health workers in Bonny General Hospital the Health centers in Bonny and Finima. Following a survey analysis in 2003 to ascertain the performance of the ITS as a veritable mechanism of human capital development since its inception in 1997, it became necessary to review the implementation strategy toward the support of this programme with the view of positively improving overall performance.
The ITS has on average about 190 academic and non-academic staff yearly from Community Secondary School (CSS) Bonny, Community Secondary School (CSS) Burukiri, Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS) Finima and Bonny National Grammar School (BNGS) Bonny.
