NiFESS Scholarship and Grant

Undergraduate Scholarship

The NIFESS Scholarship and Grant Trust fund (NSGTF)

The NiFESS Scholarship and Grant Trust Fund is a financial reserve backed by private organizations and NGOs to help cushion the effects of the Nigerian Economic vulnerability by offering financial aid to 10,000 (Ten thousand) students and professionals of social sciences and related courses/faculties. This initiative is a response to the inadequate financial aid and sponsorship made available to social sciences/management students undergoing studies in Nigerian universities, for this reason we have created the NSGTF as a platform where these students and professionals (members of NiFESS) can access financial aid for free for every academic session.

These aids include:
Undergraduate Scholarship
Undergraduate Final Year Research Project Grant
Post-Graduate Scholarship
Post-Graduate Research Grant of up to 1,000,000 NGN (Depending on the financial needs assessment and approval from the NiFESS Scholarship and Grant Board)
Research Grant for Doctorate Degree of up to 3,000,000 NGN (Subject to budget approval from the NiFESS Scholarship and Grant Board)
Fellows Research allowance: Open to only Fellows of NiFESS. Fellows can access Grants of up to 10,000,000 NGN for Cross continental and International research projects, and integral research works for National Growth and Development.
