University undergraduates from the Niger Delta region will soon begin to enjoy scholarships from the Niger Delta Development Commission, as an extension of its 8-year-old Foreign Post Graduate Scholarship Program.
NDDC Managing Director, Nsima Ekere, announced this during the flag off of the donation of nine thousand, six hundred desks and chairs to public schools at the NDDC state office in Uyo.
Ekere hinted that the NDDC had been investing massively in scholarship programmes for students seeking post graduate studies in schools all over the world.
He said the NDDC was also considering intervening in under-graduate studies, aside from the scholarship programme the commission had focused on at the post graduate level, to give intellectually smart and alert students an opportunity to have good education.
Ekere assured that the processes for the selection of graduates for the foreign scholarship programme would start early this year and end in good time, to ensure that the beneficiaries were not delayed for the next academic year.
