The College Relief Fund (CRF) is a comprehensive fundraising initiative established to ensure the long-term fiscal support and providing opportunities for all youths aspiring to fulfill their dreams of attaining a quality post secondary education within Nigeria.
AIM: Stress-Free Education
Since its inception in 2018, CRF has engaged stakeholders interested in the educational advancement of the Nigerian Youth. We are happy to have hit a break and raised $245,000.00 in 2019 to kick-off our first round of direct scholarships to support deserving students across higher institutions in Nigeria. CRF is building a proven track record of using its funds to efficiently and effectively fulfill the mission.
Our aim is to provide young Nigerians and indigent families with the knowledge and resources needed to successfully complete a higher education, and provide scholarships and support services to as many students as possible on a per need basis.
Scholarships are one of the best and most effective ways for students to be granted the opportunity to realize their dreams of a quality and sustainable education.
Beneficiaries of the scholarship will receive a need-based endowment grant up to N500,000.00 to cover tuition fees, accommodation and general expenses. The grant is expected to be an annual grant after reassessment of academic improvement, changes in financial status and other parameters as may be appropriate to determine the awardee’s needs.
