Annual Cyfed Scholarships worth N70, 000 (seventy thousand naira) will be available to eligible undergraduate students (it was originally N50,000 in 2017 and 2018). The targets are brilliant but indigent scholars, with an interview to follow the shortlisting of initially successful candidates.

Applications will usually be invited from suitable candidates within the first half of every year (starting from 2017), with the beneficiaries being announced around the last quarter of that same year.

The winners, to be called Cyfed Scholars, will continue to enjoy the same amount annually for the stipulated duration of their undergraduate programmes, subject to academic performances.

Please note that this scholarship scheme is completely free to all applicants. There will be no costs incurred at any stage throughout the application process, the interviews, or the award itself.
It will also remain free to all recipients throughout the entire duration of their entire programs.

The OCI Foundation does not accept applications submitted by third parties, and no authorized representative or agent has been (or will be) appointed on behalf of the Foundation. Please, d
o not pay anything to anybody regarding the Cyfed Scholarships.
