Merry Hearts Scholarship Fund is an initiative of The Merry Hearts Foundation (MHF) Inc.
The Merry Hearts Foundation is a non-profit initiative that reaches out to underprivileged pre-university youths in impoverished regions of the world. It is constantly seeking ways to make a significant impact in educating and improving living conditions for those in need.
The Fund provides financial, moral, material and intellectual support in equipping students with the tools they need to succeed academically and socially.
Students are chosen to be recipients of the scholarship based upon their need, which is determined by the students’ family income, family structure, and the total cost of attending the chosen school.
Students are also evaluated based on past academic performance, i.e. has the student proven that they are serious about their education by maintaining a satisfactory academic record?
Any student residing within the nation of Nigeria that is attending any pre-university institution is qualified to apply.
Teachers and school officials are encouraged to submit to the Foundation, names of students whom they have recognized to have more pressing need for the scholarship. However, please note that such nomination does not infer that the student will receive any preferential treatment during the selection process.
All applications will be evaluated based on pre-set scholarship standards.
