LIST OF SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS FOR THE 3RD EDITION OF PRESSID SCHOLARSHIP AWARD OUT

ImageAs part of efforts to develop a critical mass of professionals who would serve as catalysts of change and agents of scientific and technological advancement, as well as sustainable economic development, the Federal Government instituted the Presidential Special Scholarship Scheme for Innovation and Development (PRESSID) to sponsor outstanding students for postgraduate studies in the top 100 universities in the world.

The Scheme, which sponsors graduates that have obtained first class honours degrees from any recognised and approved university, was established in January 2012 and has awarded a total of two hundred and five (205) scholarships under two editions (the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 academic sessions).

The PRESSID Implementation Committee, on 8th September 2014, invited qualified candidates to apply for the third edition (2015/2016 academic session) and is therefore pleased to announce the names of the successful candidates for the award of scholarships for the 2015/2016 academic session.
