The Christopher Kolade Foundation SHE Soars Scholarship Program application for the 2023/2024 academic session is now open. Soars Scholarship provides need-based financial sponsorship and mentorship to female graduates of public secondary schools in Nigeria who have secured admission into a Nigerian public university.
SHE Soars launched in 2019, with five SHE Soars Scholars benefitting from the scholarship program. Today, there are 24 Soars Scholars in 14 universities across the country. Soars Scholarships are competitive, with each application examined and decided upon based on outstanding academic performance and the economic background of applicants. Current scholars are enrolled in universities nationwide studying Medicine and Surgery, Mechatronics Engineering, Physiotherapy, Aeronautics and Astronautic Engineering, Agricultural Extension, Psychology, Law, and Accounting. Our sponsors include women from the financial, legal, SME sectors, and other industries.
Soars Sponsorship Eligibility
To be eligible, applicants must be female graduates of a Nigerian public secondary school and must have verifiable proof of admission into a Nigerian public tertiary institution.
The scholarship value is pegged at N200,000/annum and is estimated to cover tuition, books, and a modest monthly stipend. The sponsorship duration would span the student’s entire course of study, which, in our estimate, would be 4-6 years, depending on the course of study.
