We are pleased to inform the general public that the application portal for the 2020 Stanbic IBTC University Scholarship for Nigerian Students will be open from 1st September 2020 to
24th October 2020.
Latest Update: The deadline to apply is now 31st December 2020. According to the scholarship board, the extension is to give fair chance to all 2020 UTME candidates. See details below:
Chief Executive of the company, Dr Demola Sogunle, said in a statement that the extension was necessary because most universities had not conducted the mandatory Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME) screening while others had not released their admission lists.
“So with this extension, all the students who participated in the 2020 UTME would now have a fair chance to apply and those who have earlier applied with incomplete applications would have the opportunity to complete them,” Dr Sogunle said.
