In this post, we are giving answers to the common questions and confusions as regards ongoing 2019 PTDF Scholarship application for undergraduates.
Yesterday, the application for 2019 Petroleum Development Trust Fund (PTDF) Scholarship for undergraduates began. However, there are lots of questions been asked by undergraduates as regards the applications so that they do not make mistakes. We have created a compilation of the different answers to those questions using past experiences and the information made available to us.
Who is eligible to apply for PTDF Undergraduate Scholarship?
Undergraduates from Federal Universities
Which Courses / Field of study should Apply for PTDF Scholarship?
Petroleum related fields. However, all engineering students should endeavour to apply.
Which level is eligible to apply for?
Those admitted during the 2017/2018 academic session. This is the very confusing part because of the CGPA requirement which is virtually impossible in ANY FEDERAL UNIVERSITY in Nigeria and application is restricted to Federal Universities. Funny
However, If I should advice, I will advise that both 100L going to 200L and present 200L going to 300L should apply. This is from previous experience
How much is PTDF Undergraduate scholarship worth?
The award letter contains annual grants worth up to NGN500,000 for the full duration of your course
What is the application Link?
When is the application ending?
16th November, 2018
How is the exam like?
Previous years was not like normal aptitude test. It looked like JAMB exam and it was taken at various schools.
Is the exam Computer Based?
No. (Using Federal University of Technology as a case study as at the last concluded exam)
How long before disbursement?
6 months – 1 year
How long does the scholarship last?
For the full duration of your course
What if I only have GP and not CGPA as a 100L student?
Use it as your CGPA. Which 2017/2018 admitted student in a Nigerian Federal University have CGPA by now?
I hope these answers the most relevant questions, if you still have other questions, ASK BELOW.
