Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation Scholarship for Selected Nigerian Universities 2023

Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation Offers Another Scholarship to 650 Students to Study Medicine in Selected Nigerian Universities

Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation has announced an additional scholarship for the 2022 academic year to 650 students who have an interest and passion in medicine and surgery to study at 12 selected Nigeria universities

In collaboration with Venezuelan Embassy in Abuja, the Foundation, which has a strong interest in education and health, had earlier announced a scholarship for 50 undergraduate students to study medicine at Latinoamerican Medicine School, Venezuela.

Unlike the Venezuela scholarship program which the foundation takes care of all funds, including tuition fees, accommodation, feeding and monthly stipends, the foundation’s national scholarship covers tuition fees, accommodation and stipends only for the entire seven years of study

The scholarship fund will be deposited in a designated bank
