2 instalments? Lucky you. We got paid yearly. Infact the last tranche was paid while we were serving.

They paid us first installment mid- 2017 (final year) and second installment mid-2018(during service), they are not exactly famous for their promptness in my school.

Btw who knows what happened to their overseas undergraduate scheme? I Knew a few recipients that time.

I think they pay tuition fees themselves, and pay you the stipend and other allowances in two installments.
I.e if your monthly stipend as an MSC scholar is £1,150 per month, they Will give you £6,900 first payment to cover first 6 months and the so also the next payment.Though a current scholar told me this, I stand to be corrected.

I was also an undergraduate beneficiary wink, our school they paid us roughly 1 million in two installments but no laptops.


Thanks for the answer .......good to know you were a PTDF undergraduate beneficiary too ...

I think you guys in your school, were very lucky to have been paid roughly 1 Million Naira ...in two installments only ...


ours was 690k in total plus an HP laptop ...( they paid us only 3 times .....i.e 230k per year ......for 3rd yr , 4th yr and Final yr )


however, they robbed us of the following :

our final year benefit (230k) ...plus 50k for our project ( Total of 280k)

our scholarship awards reads that the award takes effect from 2nd till final year ( 5 yrs course, Engineering) ....so we were supposed to be paid 4 times ...


imaging that embezzled 280k , multiplied by the total number of beneficiaries .....that's very huge.

Their local scholarship for undergraduate seems to lack organization and proper management.

Your last statement was on point. Even in our school , there was slight discrepancies in our payment...I was the closest to 1 million, they paid me 987k, while a friend in my department got 963k, someone else was paid 936k undecided. And I still don't have an award letter embarassed

From all indications OSS is more organized and efficient.

AKB1:


Thanks so much, good areas. I applied for MSC and I mentioned some of the terms you suggested, including investment and taxation. Overall, I was not too specific as a PhD proposal would normally look like. What do you think pls? Do I have chances of making it to the MSC interview?

Since you are for M.Sc., you are competing with people from your state - sharpen your communication skills and talk well if given the opportunity. Most of the panelists at the interview may be from Engineering background and will struggle to understand your research and statement of purpose coming from none engineering background.

Being an M.Sc. candidate, explain your statement of purpose very well and situate it to the oil and gas industry.

The competition is fierce and you are competing with people from your own state. Hope for the best as I cant say much as I don't know what the interviewers will be asking. Go through the thread for comments made by people here.

SUMMARY ON 2019 BSC, MSC AND PHD CHINESE GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP

a. There are five different types of Chinese Government scholarship that you can apply for. The CHINESE GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP- UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME offers full scholarship. The OTHER CHINESE SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES offer full or partial scholarship. Apply for all the scholarships here: https://www.nairaland.com/4943935/apply-2019-bsc-msc-phd

b. You can apply to the five scholarships above if you have the capital and time, But quality matters. At least, try and apply for only one scholarship scheme and in one school especially the CHINESE GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP- UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME if you don’t have much money. I know someone who only applied to one university through CHINESE GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP- UNIVERSITY PROGRAMME and won and I know another person that apply to all the 5 different scholarship schemes and still did not win.

c. Chinese universities accept HND with PGD, HND only, BSC for Masters and MSc (minimum MPhil grade) for PhD scholarship. However, each university has different requirements as the entry requirements varies. Great opportunity to gain overseas scholarship as most criteria nowadays are high

d. Check for Chinese universities, degrees and courses taught in English using this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TpVEQf_T1y8qELNrUaa-7GQhS9FaTCUG/view?usp=sharing

e. To know about China, schools and visa application, come to this thread; https://www.nairaland.com/2027910/nigerian-students-china/35

f. For more information on scholarship and empowerment opportunities, come to DMainMan Foundation page (http://facebook.com/dmainmanfoundation) (www.dmainmanconsult.com)

DMainMan wishes you success InshaALLAH.

it is not needed at this stage, if you have been on NL you will notice it is after the award list is out that is when Whatsapp is needed to coordinate activities like Visa processing and accommodation etc
