  3. @anonymous, the call for application for the 'ABC Transport National University Scholarship Award' SEEM to be for university students only. However, for the benefit of readers who are polytechnic or COE students, i have contacted the ABC Transport Scholarship Committee on this issue, and currently awaiting their response. That response will be communicated on this page when available. THE VERY BEST WISHES!

  4. PLEASE I AM A MEDICAL STUDENT CURRENTLY IN YEAR ONE. AM I ELIGIBLE TO APPLY. THANKS

  5. @anonymous, ABC Transport Company has clearly listed the courses this scholarship is intended for; but rather unfortunately medicine isn't one of them. H/v you may still take the chance and apply because you actually lose nothing trying out your luck here. But please do bear in mind that your application may most likely NOT be considered.

    Secondly, on the issue of whether students of polytechnics and colleges of education can apply, we're still awaiting a response from the ABC Transport Scholarship Committee. Their response will be published on this page once it comes. Good luck all!

  8. Is it open to 200 level students?

  9. According to ABC Transport, this scholarship is ONLY for "...full-time 100 level undergraduates in Nigerian universities." So the answer to your question is NO. We're still awaiting confirmation from ABC Transport, to ascertain if Polytechnic and COE students, may also be included and benefit by applying to the scholarship. Hope this helps

  13. Pls, when should we xpect the result? You made mention of matric number, what about those without matric number for now like me?

    ReplyDelete
  14. hi @Anonymous, about expecting the result, ABC Transport will contact you IF you are successfully shortlisted via an SMS b4 the end of February (see above).
    About the matric number issue, i really dont know. But i believe that bcos of the large number of students that will apply, the ABC Scholarship committee will be strict in shortlisting candidates based ONLY on the eligibility criteria and requirements they have listed out. If you're in Owerri (or any other town with ABC terminal), you may do well to visit them to ask directly. Goodluck!

  17. Hi @Annonymous, as i have pointed out severally, this site is not directly affiliated with ABC Transport. We only supply students with timely information. You may NEED to visit any ABC Transport Bus Terminal closest to where you live to find out.
    Having said that, i believe that as a Yr 1 student, you should expect questions on Maths, English and related subjects at your level.
    Remember that if you have been sent an SMS text, it means you've been short-listed and you'll NEED to present ORIGINALS of your documents. So keep them handy. Best of luck!

  21. Up 2 now I saw nothing like invitation 4 d test, do this mean I wasnt shortlisted?

  22. Since many applicants have received texts, while you haven't; it seems likely you weren't short-listed.
    But remember that network can be terrible at times. If you ask me, i'd advise you to visit ABC Transport office to confirm

  23. My friends have been receiving text messages....for the second stage...when they were sending it, my phone was switched off, can you tell me which ABC to visit.

  25. hi @annonymous, the main ABC Transport branch to visit wld naturally be their main office in Owerri, Imo state. However, if this is far from you ie you live in another state, you may want to start with the one nearest to wherever you reside
