The NNPC/ADDAX Scholarship is a scholarship program sponsored by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Addax Petroleum Development (Nigeria) Limited. The program is designed to provide financial assistance to Nigerian students who are pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate studies in various fields in Nigerian universities.
The scholarship covers tuition fees, accommodation, and a stipend for books and other academic materials. To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be Nigerian citizens, possess a minimum of a second class upper division in their undergraduate degree, and have gained admission into a Nigerian university for a full-time postgraduate or undergraduate program.
The selection process for the scholarship is highly competitive and based on academic merit. Shortlisted candidates are required to undergo a computer-based test, an oral interview, and a medical examination.
