So, minus the IT (ICT) and LAW Disciplines, no scholarship for other disciplines... Why must some disciplines be left out. If people graduate with First Class Degrees from their universities, the least the country (and government) should do is open up scholarship avenues and other opportunities to empower them. Establishing the scholarship scheme is a good move but other disciplines should not be shortchanged...

Waste of time and risking one's life travelling to Abuja only for them to select one person per state.

Won't risk such wasteful journey again

Please go and read up who NITDA is. It is offering scholarship to applicants within its field of engagement. If you're interested in such stay on the lookout, there are other agencies that offer scholarships that might fall within your area of interest.
