This scheme was instituted to complement Federal Government’s effort in rebuilding Nigeria’s North-Eastern region through the 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.
