UNN USA Alumni Scholarship

Since its formation, the UNN-USA has embarked on various projects. The flagship of these projects is the scholarship scheme.

Michael Okoroafor, the founding president of UNN-USA, and his wife Ngozi used their position as Snr. Vice President at Heinz Foods to secure substantial seed money to launch the scholarship program.

Several other donors have followed suit to deepen the pool with a significant donation of $20,000.00 from Cosmas Maduka of Coscharis Nigeria Limited.

    • Nazydate,

      There is no information for now concerning the UNN Alumni scholarship.

      You will get a mail from the scholarship committee if you pass the first stage of the screening.

      What you can do now is to keep checking your email for feedback from the scholarship team.

      Also, use the link in this post to join my scholarship WhatsApp group to interact with other applicants.

      Good luck.

    • Are all your first semester result out?

      Go on with the application if your first semester GPA is above 4.0.

      You have got nothing to lose.

    • Sorry, Oguara

      You cannot apply for the scholarship.

      It is only students of the University of Nigeria that are eligible to apply for the scholarship.

  2. Please ,after the application i was told that they will get back to me within 3 days but I have not heard from them.

    • Henry,

      You need not reapply after a successful application for the UNN-USA alumni scholarship.

      The scholarship board will get back to you through email.

      Exercise patience for now.

      • I am a 400level student with incomplete 3rd year results (one unseen for 1st semester and none from 2nd semester).
        Please how do I go about it based on the GPA or can I use only 100 and 200 levels results?
