NNPC/ADDAX Petroleum Scholarship

Two major categories exist for the Addax Petroleum Development (Nigerian) Limited scholarships. Namely

  • The Host Communities Merit Award 
  • The National Merit  Awards

The Host Communities Merit Award 

This is only open to students from the host communities. They include indigenes of Akwa Ibom, Imo State, and Rivers State.

The National Merit  Awards 

This is a national merit scholarship for Nigerian undergraduates open to non-indigenes of the host communities. You can apply for this category if you are not from Imo, Rivers, or Akwa Ibom state.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC) is the oil corporation through which the federal government of Nigeria regulates and participates in the country’s petroleum industry.

Therefore as a way of contributing to the Nigerian community, introducing the NNPC scholarship for undergraduates was a welcome development that has, over the years, seen intelligent and talented Nigerian students with little or no hope of finishing their higher education go through school.

The scholarship is worth N 100,000 annually throughout your study year for university students, but for polytechnic students, it’s only for the Ordinary National Diploma(2 years).
