    The part that has to do with year one result, must it be in an official format like your school letter head and HOD’s approval.

    1. Nelson, yes if possible.. It should be like a transcript.

    2. Nelson

      I hope it won’t affect my chances of
      getting shortlisted.

    3. Nelson, do you mean to say that you did not submit the result from the department?

  • Orji Victory Uche

    Comments (required)I am very grateful for the pieces of information. Thanks.

    1. You’re welcome Uche!

  • Thank you for your swift response, I finished my application about 3 weeks ago. I clicked on the submit button after filling the application form and was asked to print out the page. Though a successful submission page was displayed, but the thing is; are we not supposed to receive an acknowledgement message?

    1. Enoma, you’re welcome. An email will only be sent to you if you are shortlisted for the screening exercise. If you saw the successful submission page, then there’s no problem.

  • I have applied for the scholarship and submitted my application, I was asked as well to print out the page of the final step which I did. But I checked my email and there was nothing like an acknowledgement message to show one has submitted their application, is anyone having the same challenge?

    1. Enoma, when did you finish the application?

  • am a 300lvl student am I eligible?

  • Ajoagu Johnchemberleen O
