The Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation has announced another scholarship opportunity for 650 students to study medicine at various Nigerian universities.
Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation scholarship 2021
The Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation has offered an additional scholarship for the 2022 academic year to 650 students with an interest and enthusiasm in medicine and surgery to study at 12 Nigerian universities.
The Foundation, which has a great interest in education and health, has previously announced a scholarship for 50 undergraduate students to study medicine at the Latinoamerican Medicine School in Venezuela in partnership with the Venezuela Embassy in Abuja.
Unlike the Venezuela scholarship program, where the foundation handles all funds, including tuition, housing, food, and monthly stipends, the foundation’s national scholarship only covers tuition, housing, and stipends for the entire seven years of study.
The scholarship money will be placed in a specific bank.
