The Lagos State Government is to give Bursary awards to Students for the year 2019.
Bursaries reduce the cost of Undergraduate and postgraduate study and the burden of debt because they don’t have to be repaid. Even if they do not cover the full amount of fees and living costs – and very few do – they can reduce tuition fees, fund travel costs and provide cash grants.
Indigenes of Lagos State all over the country including those that are physically challenged can now apply for this Bursary Award. It may cover up for every necessary expenses a student may need to pull through for the session.
The application form is out and it is advisable for interested persons to carefully read and go through the guidelines, take note of the requirements and apply if eligible.
