Application for Enugu State Scholarship Award for Indigent Students – 2021


Enugu State Scholarship board was established in 2009 under the Sullivan administration with the objective, inter alia, of ensuring that many indigent but exceptionally brilliant students are given the opportunity to go to school.

Since the establishment of the board, not so many people knew about its existence until the administration of His Excellency, Rt. Honourable Ifeanyi Lawrence Ugwuanyi wherein the board became a household name through the award of various degrees of scholarships to Enugu indigenes to study both within and outside the country.

The Scholarship board has automated the system of application of scholarships through its portal that enables all Enugu applicants create an account through which all their applications are made and processed. This portal is designed in such a way that enables the applicants track the status update of their applications online without any human interference. The portal offers CBT solutions that make the conduct of aptitude tests and exams seamless. It equally contains an internal control mechanism to ensure that non Enugu indigenes do not usurp the opportunities meant for ‘ndi’ Enugu.

Please are we meant to receive mail???

  2. Sir anytime I check the dashboard, I’ll keep seeing wait for 4 hours, any problem?

  7. OMEJE ENELO NGOZICHIJIOKE

    Good evening, I applied for the scholarship scheme since yesterday night and it has been writing awaiting review even until now. I have waited for the required 4hrs and nothing has happened please help me out. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    • After submitting your application, you are required to check within the next 72 hours for your application status. It can come any time within those hours.

      • Please sir, when is the registration ending,because am yet to get complete my registration this is because am yet to receive my Recommendation from my village head…

        • The application is supposed to have ended on 8th July, 2021.

          But the last time I checked, the application portal is still open.

      • Chukwuekwe Prosper Chisom

        Please sir, I have applied and waited for the 72 hours of review but up till now, I’m still asked to wait in the next four hours. What does that mean sir?

    • OMEJE ENELO NGOZICHIJIOKE

      Sir, is Biology Education students not among those eligible for the scholarship? I am asking this because my application has been awaiting review for days now. God bless you as you clear my doubt.

  8. Please which site do I use to apply for the scholarship?

    • The link to the site is boldly displayed at the bottom of the post you just commented on (this post). Please scroll up to get it.

  9. Ezekiel wilfred

    Pls I have been calling the numbers to purchase my voucher but non of it are going is either switch off or number busy pls I need this scholarship n it is ending tomorrow

    • The application vouchers are not for sale. They are given to interested students for free.

      The numbers are hot lines. Hundreds of people are trying to get through. So most times they are busy.

      I suggest you go in person to their office. You will get the voucher.

  10. Chidera Kelvin

    Sir, I thought the scholarship doesn’t discriminate on Courses of study?

    Why is my Course(Public Administration) not listed on the “Scholarship program” and yet I can not submit my application without selecting one of the courses listed therein?

    • I don’t know how you got the application voucher – whether you visited the office or got it through phone call.

      I suggest that you use the same means to direct this question to the scholarship board. They are in the best position to give you an answer as to why Public Administration is not listed for the current opportunity. It’s only the board’s office that can give you a valid answer, and maybe suggest if you can select any available close department to yours just in order to be able to submit your application.

      Best wishes

    • Plz what’s the link to apply nd submit the scanned documents

      • The link is boldly displayed at the bottom of the post you just commented on (this post). Please scroll up to get it.

  11. Ezebuiro Chidera

    Good evening to you sir.
    Please my Course of study(Public Administration) is not among the listed courses in the “Scholarship program” column in the form I’m filling and I can not submit my application without choosing one of the courses listed therein.

    What should I do?

    • Ezebuiro Chidera

      Good morning to you sir.

      Please can I have a reply to my earlier question so I would know what to do because this time finally elapses please?

  12. Chukwuekwe Prosper Chisom

    Greetings, Please sir can school admission letter be used instead of jamb admission letter?

  13. Please sir what should we read for the upcoming cbt test or rather what type of test will it be?

  14. You’re doing a great job in the answers you are providing to many candidates.

    Pls do you have study material one can use to prepare well for the CBT coming on 12th July in respect of 2021 undergraduate scholarship

    • Sorry, we don’t have any study material for the CBT.

      You can try GMAT.

      • Please how do I get the vocher
        Have been trying the numbers in d screen
        But they are all saying switch off

        And I can’t go to there office
        Because am currently in School

        • Some people have been able to get the vouchers through the numbers. You can try again and again; try on week days during office hours.

          Otherwise, send someone to the board’s office to get it for you if you can’t go by yourself.

      • What’s GMAT

      • Pls how do we get the voucher? I have been calling those numbers but nobody is picking. It keeps saying line busy. Chai. this is so unfair

  15. Do you have any online resource material that can assist in preparation for the CBT test on 12 July 2021, for undergraduate scholarship? Can you kindly get back to me on my email address: emekas.ene@gmail.com. Thanks

  16. Ngozi Chinonso

    Good evening sir. Please, what should we read in preparation for the test? What areas will the questions be focused on?
    Will it be a general aptitude test?

  17. Can letter of attestation from my parish priest in enugu serve instead of from village head cos I’m not in enugu now

    • There’s something many of you are missing.

      By reason of this scholarship advert, the board will receive thousands of applications in excess of the available slots. And there must be criteria for disqualifying applicants even before the selection test.

      Try to meet up with the clearly stated requirements to be on the safe side.

      You can send a relation in the village to get the letter and waybill for you.

  18. Pls I am just newly admitted, so I don’t think I have anything in my GPA for now
    What should I do

    Can I use local govt identification in place of the letter from village head???

    • As a newly admitted student, apply as 100level. Every other thing will be understood.

      Please note that Certificate of LGA origin and Recommendation letter from your village head are two different requirements and you need both.

      • Onah Jude chinago

        Sir please, how will I know the exam date

        • If you have successfully completed your application for the scholarship, you will be notified on the date for the computer based interview.

  19. I’m in 200l, which scholarship should i go for, is it undergraduate or 2021 tertiary
    I’m a student of department of microbiology but my course is not in the scholarship program

  20. Good morning sir
    Pls after submitting my application, I found out that the PDF did not load and they already said they would review my application within 72hrs.
    Pls if I upload the PDF again will it reflect?

    • If there is still access to upload it, do go ahead and re-upload.

      But if you already successfully submitted your application, it might mean that the PDF actually uploaded…. it just might be.

  21. Olah somtochukwu

    Pls sir I just got admitted dis year ND my school id card is not yet available. Pls is there any other alternative.. pls help🙏

  22. Can someone with international admission apply?

    • It’s supposed to be for those studying in Nigerian Tertiary Institutions.

      But I guess there is no harm in trial. You can apply and see what becomes the outcome.

  23. Pls I just got admission into unn
    Which one should I go for

  25. Please sir I don’t really know which one to choose, what is the difference between the bursary and undergraduate because am still in my second semester 100L

    • A scholarship is a means of financial support that is awarded based on the individual assessment of predetermined criteria – a scholarship will focus on recognising and rewarding your academic achievement(s).

      Bursary is a means of monetary support designed to assist students who meet specific financial eligibility criteria and come from a specified area.

  26. Please sir must the latter of recommendation come from a village head ?
    What about a recommendation letter from a parish priest ?

    • This whole package is designed by the Governor (HE Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi) for indigenes of Enugu state. Some of the requirements are the measures put in place to ensure that the beneficiaries are truly Enugu Indigenes.

      So try to get what they require. It’s not without a reason.

    • Ngozi Chinonso

    How I know which one to apply for, wether bursary, undergraduate or 2021 tertiary education scholarship in the options given.
    How do I get my LG ID stamped by Enugu state scholarships board?

    • The choice of what to apply for is yours to make.

      Get your ID stamped at the board’s office address. The address is in this post, just scroll up to get it.

      • Please I don’t understand which one to apply for because I just got admission in Direct Entry to start from 200 level. But they are requesting for my current CGPA when I’m no longer in that school, Student ID (is it that of my previous school?), and admission letter. Or am I supposed to go for the undergraduate one?

        Why I’m asking is because I will be starting from 200l, I just need clarification Sir. Thank you

        • You know that normally, what is required in this kind of thing are documents or credentials from your current institution. For the avoidance of doubt, you can go to the Board’s office and enquire directly from them.

  36. Pls Sir… What’s the office address?

    • 28 okpara Avenue, old CCB building, Enugu.

    • Please sir I don’t really know which one to choose, what is the difference between the bursary and undergraduate because am still in my second semester 100L
