Addax scholarship 2019 is now ongoing for undergraduate students. This application resumed yesterday via the portal, in this post, we will let you know the differences between this addax application and previous addax applications, so that you will be guided effectively.
2018/2019 NNPC/ADDAX PETROLEUM SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME
Addax Scholarship programme unlike NLNG which is currently ongoing now is meant for students from the following states for the federation:
- Akwa Ibom and
- Imo States
Applicants from other states according to the advert will not be considered for the scholarship program, however, we are making efforts to contact the organizer s to ascertain whether this is an error owing to the fact that previous addax scholarship applications have always been a national merit program. This suspicion came from the statement in the official advert “Only Indigenes of APDNL Host Communities in Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Imo States SHOULD apply for the Host Communities Merit Award.” as though there was another category of scholarship program they could apply for.
Previous addax scholarship applications were done through an email address, of which we have not published such on mbscholars due to the fact that we do know that this year’s application will be done through scholastica. This is how we got this information intuitively
