Kaduna State Scholarship scheme Online Application Form from scholarship board|how to apply
The Kaduna State Scholarship and Loans Board has a mandate ‘To identify, select and empower veritable citizens of Kaduna state to meet the current and future manpower requirements of the State while remaining globally competitive’.
It has been revealed in a recent research that 40% of Nigerians who come from the North are not lliterates. A lot of things stop them from going to school. The main factor is lack of money for tuition fees.
However, Northern Nigerians have been said to be very intelligent naturally, but inability to read and write could have a very bad effect on people. This reason birthed the Scholarship programme managed by the Kaduna State Scholarship and Loans board.
This board aids in providing funds to make education accessible for all. All those who do not have the capability or resources to sponsor themselves to school should be glad now as a solution has been provided for them.
Also, the board gives out loans to entrepreneurs, farmers in the state to grow their business and pay back with a very little interest rate. Many people have been taking advantage of this opportunity, and I believe you do not want to miss it.
