Ajesola Solarin Majekodunmi Foundation Scholarship 2023

The Ajesola Solarin Majekodunmi Foundation (ASMAF) Scholarship Award is a Need-based financial aid for which the student and family’s financial situation is a primary factor in determining recipients. Besides the student and family’s financial situation the awardees must be promising students with superior academic ability.

The Award Provides:

  • Financial assistance for a professional course of study at a public Nigerian University covering tuition, board and upkeep for a period of up to 6 years, depending on the course and year of award, and subject to maintaining satisfactory academic progress.
  • Life skills and leadership development programmes including mentoring, with distinctive personal, academic and professional growth opportunities.
  • Access to resources that provide useful information and tools that encourage academic excellence and lifelong learning.

The applicant and family’s ability to contribute or pay toward the costs of university will be the primary factor used to determine financial need. Financial need will be evaluated by a number of factors, including the applicant and her family’s income, assets, and family size. In general, a family income of N1m or less, has a reasonable opportunity to be financially eligible for an ASMAF Scholarship; whereas a family earning above N2m is likely not financially eligible. While these are general rules, all applicants will be evaluated on an individual basis.
