NLNG Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Scholarship
The security situation in North Eastern Nigeria has unfortunately created a large population of vulnerable persons. This scheme was instituted to complement Federal Government’s effort in rebuilding Nigeria’s North-Eastern region through award of scholarships to 30 candidates (10 from each of the IDP camps in the three states worse hit by insurgency – Adamawa, Borno and Yobe). This award is to take the set of students through secondary education. Beneficiaries under this scheme are currently in their second year of post primary education.
