“Stanbic IBTC University Scholarship For Young Nigerians is in continuance of our goal to support dreams and aspirations of Nigerian youths as we have been doing over the years through various activities such as Youth Leadership Series (YLS), Higher Institution Football League (HIFL) and so on”. These were the words of Dr Demola Sogunle, Chief Executive, Standbic IBTC Holdings PLC at the launching of the 2021 edition of the Standbic IBTC university scholarship scheme.
The scholarship programme is aimed at encouraging hard work and academic excellence amongst Nigerian undergraduates and it is open to students who participated in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and have gained admission into any Nigerian state or federal university. The scholarship scheme, which is valued at N40 million, is structured to cater for academic expenses across a period of four years and will be disbursed to each successful applicant in tranches of N100,000 per academic session. Disbursements from the second year will be dependent on the maintenance of a minimum of a second-class upper CGPA and good conduct of the beneficiary student as referenced by the university.
In the words of Dr Demola Sogunle, Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, the organisation recognises the importance and impact of education in the life of every Nigerian youth. According to him: “Education empowers and encourages the youth to prepare for the future while also confronting challenges. Education is a panacea for growth and enduring development of any nation or organisation.”
