AUN awards 67 scholarships to Nigerian students

The American University of Nigeria (AUN) has offered 67 scholarships to new students only for the 2016/2017 academic session, reports ITRealms.

A press statement endorsed by the Executive Director, Communications and Public Relations at AUN, Mr. Daniel Okereke, made available to ITRealms, the scholarships were in 3 categories.

These, he said, include the National Scholarship for the overall top scorer (1 scholarship), Regional Scholarships for the top 5 scorers in each region (30 scholarships), and State Scholarships for the top scorer in each state (36) scholarships. 

He explained that apart from the national scholarship that covered ALL costs of attendance, each scholarship in a category covered 50% of tuition. A candidate could win in up to two categories (50% state and 50% regional) if they were one of the top 5 highest scorers in their region and also the highest scorer in their state for a combined win of 100% coverage on tuition.

A total of 45 students won 64 of the scholarships, while two state scholarships were not awarded because 2 states did not feature a contestant.
