The Niger Delta region is known for its significant oil and gas reserves, but it has also faced numerous socio-economic challenges. One of the ways the government aims to address these challenges is by offering scholarships to qualified students from the region to pursue higher education overseas.
  • The amount for the foreign scholarship shall be based on the prevailing exchange rate of the Naira.Current Application Closing Date is 3rd November, 2023.

    Application Procedure

  • 1.The following documents must be attached to the application:
    2.Recent passport photograph
    3.Local Government Identification Letter
    4.Post Graduate admission letter from a recognized overseas university
    Relevant degrees from recognized universities
    5.NYSC Discharge/Exemption Certificate
    6.Upon successful completion of the application form, a registration number will be automatically assigned.
    7.Applicants are advised to print a hard copy of the online-generated acknowledgment for future reference.
    8.All shortlisted applicants will be announced and posted on the NDDC website: These shortlisted candidates will subsequently be required to take part in a Computer-Based Test (CBT).

About the NDDC Scholarship test format

NDDC overseas scholarship test was conducted by Cinfores-Ltd, between 2010 and 2015. Since 2016, the tests are now conducted by MEIL (MARG Educational International Limited).

The test usually comprises of 2 sections –

1. General questions which everyone will have to sit, and

2. Discipline-based questions.

For example, candidates in Engineering and Science related disciplines could take a mix of science-based questions like maths, English, physics and chemistry for part 1, then discipline-specific questions for part 2. The  test usually last between 30 to 60 minutes.
