About Scholarship

Adamawa State Scholarship Trust Fund is a Parastatal of the Adamawa state government established by Law No. 10 of December 2008.

Modern challenges in educational financing in the wake of the geometric rise in student population and dwindling government finances compelled the Adamawa state government to critically reexamine its role in providing students with Bursaries, special and full scholarships, and student loan schemes at both local and international levels.

Against this background, the state government found it necessary to reposition its scholarship apparatus to face reality. Thus, the emergence of ASSTF, whose functions and powers include:

  • Source for funds and scholarships from within and outside Nigeria
  • Award scholarships to eligible indigenes of the state.

Scholarship Categories

The ASSTF has 5 types of scholarship schemes, namely:

  1. Special scholarship
  2. Full scholarship
  3. Bursary
  4. Foreign scholarship
  5. Students loan

Full Scholarships

The full scholarship scheme is a performance-based scholarship for institutions of higher learning within Nigeria.

Its criteria hinge on cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). The cut-off point is 3.00 and above.

This type of scholarship provides the indigenous beneficiary with a particular amount of money that covers his/her tuition fees and learning materials.

It is applicable to approved courses in Nigerian Universities (at the undergraduate level only), Monotechnics and polytechnics.

Foreign Scholarships

The foreign scholarship is for indigenous students whose courses of study are not tenable in Nigerian Universities.

This scholarship is open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students in selected countries.
