About the Nestle Scholarship Scheme
The Nestle Nigeria Community Scholarship Scheme is divided into two parts: senior secondary and higher education. Students in these categories will get financial assistance for tuition, housing, uniforms, books, and other educational expenses during their academic careers.
This scholarship initiative is in line with SDG 4, which calls for inclusive and equitable quality education and the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for everyone by 2030.
The Nestle Nigeria Community Scholarship Scheme is committed to closing this educational gap by offering financial aid to young people pursuing science and technology studies at the secondary and tertiary levels.
