Students at primary and secondary (or post-secondary) school levels in Nigeria have a number of scholarships open for them to apply to. These awards, usually sponsored by local and foreign private companies and individuals, may in very few cases be sponsored by the Nigerian government (at either Federal or States level).
It is important to note that, although most scholarships are offered every year, yet there are set deadlines within which to apply. If you miss to apply before or on the set deadline, you may apply the very next year.
Study & Scholarships, in its usual exemplary manner, has decided to compile and publish the below-list of constantly-growing scholarships for primary and secondary school students in Nigeria. You may also access our complete Scholarship Lists.
