Undergraduates applicants don't need to attach transcripts.

Postgraduates applicants (Who cant get their transcript by hand) should request from their school to forward their transcript to FSB Office at Central Area, opposite Arewa Palace, close to SEC Headquarters. It should be addressed to the Director,FSB,Abuja..
You can complete your application successfully without uploading documents that aren't (*) . The transcript doent affect scoring, only your certificate does.
Infact its the selected applicants that need transcripts mostly. So sending it now isn't of significant importance.




If your school doesn't give transcripts by hand and you want to forward it to the board, here's the address.
*(Not Compulsory yet though)*

The Director,
FEDERAL SCHOLARSHIP BOARD
PLOT 245 SAMUEL ADEMULEGUN STREET, CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT,
Re: Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) Scholarship Awards - 2017/2018 by Ubermind: 10:25pm On Jan 12, 2017
For UG applicants, don't bother coming if your Waec result is older than the speculated date. (Except the exam will take place in your state of residence, you might just try it for fun and experience).
Applicants last year weren't considered with NECO results too (0 marks will be awarded in the space for results).
You don't want to imagine losing 10marks in this very competitive scholarship scheme.
Re: Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) Scholarship Awards - 2017/2018 by Ubermind: 1:31am On Jan 13, 2017
About the Interview: The interview for the scholarship award, just like other interviews of the federal scholarship board is conducted by the board itself. The questions are usually objective (OMR sheet) which consists of the following subjects: English Language, Mathematics, Quantitative/Verbal Reasoning, Computer/Information Technology, Current Affairs etc.
Strict adherence to the instructions given is also advised because from gathered experience, many qualified candidates are disqualified in the long run because of this.
Re: Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) Scholarship Awards - 2017/2018 by Ubermind: 4:37am On Jan 13, 2017
Ensure all passport photograph is taken in white background.
Ensure all documents are properly scanned.
You can attach your signature by signing on a plane white piece of paper and scanning it.
Re: Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA) Scholarship Awards - 2017/2018 by Ubermind: 8:56am On Jan 13, 2017
Please note, you are to report to the venue based on your state of origin, not residency.
E.g. if you're from Osun state and you live in Ebonyi State, you can't write your exams there. You have to go to the south west region (Oyo state) to write your exam/interview.

In other not to mislead you, I will only state what I know 100%

2. Russia is really good for Chemical Engineering, however you need to have obtained your first degrees from Russia to study a postgraduate course through BEA scholarship.
