Varsity Awards Scholarship To Nigerian Students

The American University of Nigeria has reportedly offered 67 scholarships to new students only for the 2016/2017 academic session.

According to information on the school's website, the scholarships are in three categories.
These are National Scholarship for the overall top scorer (one scholarship), Regional Scholarships for the top five scorers in each region (30 scholarships) and State Scholarships for the top scorer in each state (36 scholarships).
Apart from the national scholarship that covers all costs of attendance, each scholarship in a category covered 50 per cent of tuition.
A candidate could win in up to two categories (50 per cent state and 50 per cent regional) if he or she was one of the top five highest scorers in his or her region and also the highest scorer in the state for a combined win of 100 per cent coverage on tuition.
A total of 45 students won 64 of the scholarships, while two state scholarships were not awarded because two states did not feature a contestant.
The 67 scholarships were awarded as follows: One student won the National Scholarship; 20 students who won a regional scholarship each and also were the highest scorers in their states and won 20 of the 36 state scholarships offered, making a total of 40 scholarships awarded in this group; 10 students won the remaining 10 Regional Scholarships; and  14 students won 14 of the remaining scholarships in the State Scholarships category.
Two scholarships were not awarded in the state category because two states did not feature a contestant.

The names of the successful candidates are listed on the University website.
