NDDC Speaks On Resumption Of Post-Graduate Scholarship



The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has said it will resume its Post-Graduate foreign scholarship to qualified indigent youths in the Niger Delta.

The NDDC’s Director of Corporate Communications, Mr Ibitoye Abosede made this known in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

Abosede dislosed that the Governing Board and Management of the company met earlier and had already approved the commencement of the 2018 award process which amounts to about 30,000 U.S dollars per annum.

He stated that the programme was suspended earlier to enable the commission to carry out careful restructuring of the scheme.

He said, “NDDC regrets the cancellation of the inconclusive 2017 award process and the inconveniences suffered by students who applied for the scholarship.

“To this end, all outstanding tuition for recipients of the scholarship have been cleared. This is to provide a fresh start and a seamless process.

“However, any student who has proof of non-receipt of payment should feel free to contact the commission immediately.

The scheme covers disciplines in engineering, medical sciences, computer science technology, geosciences, environmental sciences, agriculture, environment, oil and gas law and project management.

He added that advertisement for the scholarship would be published in national dailies and on the commission’s website.

He said, ‘’Established in 2010, the scholarship is designed to produce top level professionals with technical manpower, capacity and expertise to compete in oil and gas industry and in other sectors.
