US Colleges offer scholarships to Nigerian students
Barely a week after the Chinese Government awarded scholarship to 47 Nigerian students, the US Colleges want Nigerian students to study in US.
This according to to the Head of Public Affairs, US Consulate in Lagos, Darcy Zotter, is a new opportunity Nigerian students should take advantage of.
Zotter, who spoke at the ‘When Women Win’ Conference in Lagos on Friday, March 9, 2018, said that 65 students in science, technology, and engineering disciplines would form 65 percent of the beneficiaries, while 41 percent would be for the humanities.
Zotter added that African students were deemed fit for the scholarship because they possessed language skills and had traditionally done well for themselves in terms of education.
She, therefore, advised interested candidates to visit the Education USA centre or the website to get important information.
Meanwhile, the US Colleges scholarship offer to Nigerian students is coming barely a week after the Chinese Government awarded scholarship to 47 students of the University of Calabar.
