Pls with regards to the undergraduate scholarship...i applied for over 3months now...no reply yet....pls wen should I be expecting reply from them...@former UG beneficiaries


FOR THE UNDERGRADUATE CATEGORY APPLICATION:

The PTDF UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP Team lacks organization and proper management, and i doubt if they actually contact or notify applicants by sms or Mail....for their test.

I was a Former Beneficiary, ( 1st set of PTDF scholars, FUTO OWERRI) , and from my personal experience back in school, we were not contacted by mail or sms.....They only pasted the list of invited candidates for the test ...at front of our Deans Office.

All the applicants in my school that year almost missed the test....

I was returning from a fellowship program on a friday evening and decided to go withdraw money at d ATM point ...close to our Deans office, (Former SEET Head )....only to go through the wall and saw a list.....captioned "INVITATION FOR PTDF SCHOLARSHIP TEST"

funny enough, the test date was scheduled to take place the next morning ....i had to pick up my pen and wrote down all the names on the list with their phone numbers and started calling everyone ....

we were 14 invitees on the list , but i was only able to reach out 13 .


so 13 of us finally wrote d test d next morning without any preparation, and 12 of us finally got it. ....

That was how God used me that very evening to save 13 of us from missing the test and scholarship.


i don't know if PTDF Local Scholarship Team has improved their feedback mechanism by now.....

but here are my advise,

1) keep checking your Deans Office, for any notice, and keep in touch with other applicants in your Dept and school.

2) Find out the PTDF cordinator in your school, usually a Prof or HOD's of any of the PTDF target departments.... and once in a while ...visit his/her office to make enquiries.

3) Look out for and connect with existing Beneficiaries in your school. ( you may be surprised to know there are many existing beneficiaries in your Dept.)


4) keep checking the website....for any update..





But , i think , they should have improved by now, you may be contacted directly by PTDF via sms or mail if invited...

Daad mailed me to provide a reference from a university professor before 31st January. Please how do I go about it? Will get the reference letter but don't know how to submit it.
Which funding programme did you choose? I'm yet to apply to daad.

@Dmainman, @Impactever and other scholars in the house

There is something that seems confusing and I'd like to verify

I'm applying for a scholarship abroad that specifically stated FIRST CLASS as the requirement for shortlisting
It was stated that " first class, that is equivalent of a UK degree". I had a first class ( cgpa 4.51/5.0). judging with the fact that most UK schools use 4.0 cgpa scale. I tried to convert my cgpa by estimating all the courses on my transcript based on 4.0 scale and it gave me exactly 3.39/4.0


The qyestion is , can a nigerian first(4.5/5.0) class be considered as first by these UK schools?
Re: Apply 2019/2020 PTDF Scholarship In France, Germany And UK by alfarouq(m): 5:59pm On Jan 13
Pleasefor those that have already registered on daad.
Can you shed more light on what the time schedule is and it's also requesting upload transcript and letter of recommendation which unfortunately I don't have with me. Please how do I go about it. Thanks
Re: Apply 2019/2020 PTDF Scholarship In France, Germany And UK by ExpertNLer: 6:04pm On Jan 13
plase do not convert your GPA you may hinder your chances, just leave it to them to sort out. Once they say a first class degree or equivalent just upload your first class and go.

And UK universities dont use CGPA system, they use a % system with 70% upwards being adjudged as First Class

For those shortlisted, the date, venue and time will be communicated via your registered email and phone number.

However expect it to come sooner than expected.

For those asking for time schedule, it would be nice to browse it to get an idea of what it means. But I think it means the outline of how your study will go. That's the semesters, when they start and end and when the whole program will end. I'm not sure but it should be something like that.

My two cents


Meanwhile, is it only PhD aspirants that were asked to provide a professor as a reference?
