Application Tips for those applying for NLNG Undergraduate Scholarship 2019

Yesterday, we got a notification alerting us of some uncommon information and insight for all those who are applying for NLNG undergraduate scholarship, this is not known to majority of the applicants,  but we are more interested in helping you succeed than in hoarding information. So take a look at these application tips from an old applicant.

  1. Ensure you apply using your school ID Card, even if you do not have one and you intend using another document to substitute, make sure you attach any valid identification like National ID Card, from his experience, 100+ students from his school applied without the school ID card substituting it with various documents and none out of the 100 was shortlisted, so if you can get access to a school id card, that will be very good.
  2. NLNG scholarship board are very strict with shortlisting. If you disobey the rules, just forget it, you cannot be shortlisted
  3. Make sure your LGA Identification letter has a passport photograph with the stamp of your local Government on it, whether this is considered for shortlisting is yet unknown but the physical verification pays keen attention to it.
  4. If an application letter is demanded as it was last year, ensure it is written and void of grammatical blunders of any sort.

We trust that victors will come from those reading this post today. Do not forget to share with your friends, you may be helping someone’s career.
