  7. Hi @Annonymous, unfortunately we cannot answer your query bcos questions on this same issue directed to the providers of the AMEPS Scholarship Program for Nigerian students are yet to be answered by them.
    You may be well advised to apply to other available scholarship schemes while awaiting when the AMEPS Scholarship providers will revive

    1. Strictly speaking, i don't think Anatomy is one of the fields considered for this scholarship, but there is no harm in trial. So i think you should apply.

    1. The WARNING by the Scholarship Provider in the article above indicates you will no longer be able to make changes to details you entered for your application AFTER you download your profile for verification.
      Thus, i think you can change your details BEFORE, but not AFTER, the verification of your details.

    1. Hello,

      From what you say, you are a FULL TIME 200 level medical student in an approved Nigerian institution, and that makes you eligible for this award.

      For the document you mentioned, you need to pursue it quickly with a focused mind in your department.

      Goodluck!
