The Alex Otti Foundation (AOF) calls for applications from interested candidates for the Foundation’s Tertiary Education Scholarships for the 2020/2021 academic session.

The scholarship scheme was established as part of the Alex Otti Foundation’s programmes which seek to assist indigent students resident in Abia State with financial support to facilitate their educational pursuits.

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of strong personal academic background, leadership potential and a demonstrated desire to use the acquired knowledge to contribute to the development of both Abia State and Nigeria. Winners will be expected to, upon completion of their studies, apply their talents and knowledge in improving the lives of others. Over time, it is expected that the Alex Otti Scholarship beneficiaries will form a strong network of leaders who will individually and collectively contribute to the wellbeing of Abia State in particular, and Nigeria in general.
