2018 MUTA Educational Assistance Scholarship Program

Deadline: June 30th, 2018


Call for Applications


The MUTA Educational Scholarship Program is for Tiv students from the 14 Tiv-speaking Local Government Areas of Benue State and Tiv students in Nasarawa and Taraba states who are enrolled in undergraduate studies in the sciences and science professions in Nigerian universities including polytechnics.  The awards are based on merit as well as a commitment to give back to the community. Each award will go to the science student with the highest Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in each LGA.  However, no award will be made to a student with a CGPA lower than 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or 4.4 (on a 5.0 scale).  Thus, even the student with the highest CGPA in his or her local government will not be eligible for the award if his or her CGPA is below 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or 4.4 (on a 5.0 scale).  The value of the award is N25, 000.00 per recipient.
