For some Study abroad enthusiasts, programme benefits are the things that lure them to seeking to study abroad. Nevertheless, Nigeria, is considered an educational hub in Africa. There’re schools in and across Nigeria, that offers such great opportunities that their foreign counter parts could provide. The covenant university is one of such institutions.
David Oyedepo Foundation (DOF) is offering the Covenant University Postgraduate Scholarship Award to citizens and residents of African Countries. Covenant university, is a private Christian university, affiliated with Living Faith Church Worldwide and a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
The first Annual survey released by Stutern, has shown that graduates of Covenant University are currently the most employable in Nigeria at the moment. The reasons students from this school are likely to be highly employable are quite apparent, for starters, the infrastructural side of things seems to be working out pretty well for them.
Covenant University is the leading Private institution in Nigeria committed to raising a new generation of leaders. The University’s serene and green environment, state-of-the art facilities, the virtual library and a crop of distinguished faculty provides necessary incentives for effective learning and research.
The David Oyedepo Foundation Covenant University Postgraduate scholarship award is one of our major platforms for promoting the Foundation’s vision and goals. The scholarship, which grants students the
opportunity to study in Covenant University, Nigeria seeks to develop youth leaders who are ready to put their learned skills to work in leading organizations, communities and their local countries.
In addition to maintaining a high academic standard and demonstrating a commitment to continuous capacity development as leaders, students on the scholarship would be expected to carry out a community development project and would be expected to work in a social impact driven organization each summer for a 6-week period as a volunteer under standard work conditions.
