Call for Application: FG Bursary Award April 2024 (Up to N150,000 fund)

 The Federal Ministry of Education has good news for Nigerian students like you. They are giving money to help pay for school. This is called a Bursary Award and it helps you focus on your studies without worrying about money so much.

Bursary Award 2024

What is a Bursary Award?

Think of it like a gift to help you afford college. It’s different from a scholarship because it’s based on how much money you need, not how good your grades are.

Here’s the good stuff:

  • Helps pay for college costs like tuition, books, and even where you live.
  • Anyone can apply if they need the help. Some bursaries help specific groups of students too.
  • Schools, charities, and even some businesses can give bursaries.

This Bursary Award is perfect for YOU if:

  • You’re a Nigerian student studying to be a teacher in college.
  • You’re already in your second year or higher (including students with disabilities).
  • You’re not getting another scholarship already.

How Much Money Can I Get?

If you win the Bursary Award, you’ll get N150,000 every year! This can help pay for all your school stuff until you graduate.
