    The purpose of this blog is to discuss scholarships holistically and not to limit it to only opportunities to study abroad.In view of this, it is very important that i start by saying that a scholarship can also be granted to study in your domestic country or in your continent in our case AFRICA.Scholarships come in different ways to target different  students[e.g scholarships for science students], nationals[e.g Nigerian only], religions[e.g scholarships for evangelist ], professions[scholarship for accountants, doctors etc] and other target groups. Scholarship in your domestic country can be granted by government of your country or another country, Non Governmental Organizations[NGOs] like Action Aid, Cam fed, among others,international organization like UNESCO, UNICEF etc.

    The purpose of this blog is to update students on relevant information on scholarships so that we us AFRICANS can get the opportunity to study in reputable educational institutions anywhere in the world. Before i proceed i will like to make it clear that a scholarship can be gotten only when a person is aware of its existence .It cannot be gotten when you are not aware of it. Several bloggers have tried in diverse ways to bring information on scholarships to people but the INFORMATION GAP is still wide. Someone may ask a question like"what is an information gap?  An information gap under scholarships refers to the gap between a scholarship opportunity and its awareness .When more people are aware of scholarship opportunities we say there is a narrow gap. On the other hand, when few people are aware of the opportunities, we say the gap is wide .Ladies and gentlemen, in AFRICA information on scholarships do not reach out to every corner of the continent.It is against this background that i have taken it upon myself to feed you with information on scholarships.
