Scholarship Award

In 2001, Local Scholarship Award scheme was ultimately restored to assist brilliant but indigent students. This was to ensure that no Lagos State indigene in any tertiary institution is deprived of the opportunity of attaining his/her educational dream due to non-availability of funds.

 

The award of Scholarship is basically in two forms. One is awarded on compassionate grounds (that is for primary and secondary school students) while the other one is put in place to encourage brilliant academic performance with minimum CGPA of 3.5 and above or Second Class Upper/ Upper Credit. Subsequent payment of such awards is made on presentation of progress report as evidence that they have moved to the next stage of their programme.

 

The following rates were fixed as amount payable to each beneficiary, depending on the category of his/her award:-

FOREIGN SCHOLARSHIP/SPONSORSHIP AWARD
Foreign Scholarship/Sponsorship Award was reintroduced in 2005 due to the growing number of interested applicants who secured admission to study abroad but were having financial constraints. Quite a large number of indigenes and non-indigenes have benefitted from the scheme.

 

However, the Lagos State Executive Council in February 2009 suspended the award of Foreign Scholarship due to global economic meltdown. Presently, the State only services the payment of beneficiaries that are already on that scheme. However, there is a plan to re-introduce it.

Bursary Award

Bursary award was re-introduced in 1984 by the administration of Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande in line with the administration’s general populace outlook. The dwindling nature of the Government’s financial resources and the various projects competing for attention of the administration influenced the decision to replace the then scholarship award with bursary to all State indigenes in tertiary institutions within the country, rather than just a small number of beneficiaries enjoying scholarship prior to the advent of the administration.

The administration and implementation of the award was further enhanced by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration. The following rates were paid to each category of beneficiaries at that time:

  • Normal undergraduate award N10, 000.00 per session
  • Physically challenged award N20, 000.00 per session
  • Law School award N40, 000.00 per session

In the Year 2007, the present administration ensured that Bursary award rates were increased to meet with present economic realities. With the following rates approved:

This is to lighten their financial burden and it is paid once. A sum of Two Hundred Thousand Naira (N200,000) only is also awarded to indigenes of the State studying in Maritime Academy.
