The aim of the scholarship is to develop edudcational capacity that can be used to improve Nigeria
hinere:
Please I have one other question....
1) If someone gets accepted for this program, travels, studies and finishes, can the person stay back in that country work?

This is because it will sad to go over there, study and them come back here to start hustling all over again.

I went for a job interview sometime back and the guy sitting next to me studied in UK through all this programs but he was sponsored by relatives. He then finished and came back and started hustling for jobs here in Nigeria. In my mind, why didn't you just stay back in UK and work but he said they told them to return to their home country after studying.

So if this program entails scholars to return back to their home country after studying, then what's the point of travelling then?
This is because 90% of Nigerians applying for this scholarship just want to leave Nigeria for good. The program is just more or less a gateway to move out for them or am I lying?

It is expected to be uploaded as a single PDF less than 300kb in size
Sirwallace:


How many folders is needed for the upload as I have the unofficial transcript with me for every semesters in school totalling 10 papers.

Is there space on the platform to upload all of that?
Re: 2020 PTDF Overseas Scholarship In France, Germany, China And Malaysia by ExpertNLer: 11:34am On Dec 05, 2019
The point is to develop capacity, have improved qualifications and some exposure to the global scene. As for jobs, that will largely depend on the immigration laws of the countries one is studying, ofcourse going abroad will provide access to other opportunities abroad and widen the scope of job search, but one cannot simply forget to apply for Nigerian opportunities as well, especially at top companies that recruit globally e.g Total, Exxon, Nigeria LNG and the likes

I'm not a member of a professional body currently. Can I apply for an msc scholarship with ptdf?
Re: 2020 PTDF Overseas Scholarship In France, Germany, China And Malaysia by ExpertNLer: 12:57pm On Dec 05, 2019
Ofcourse you can, you don't have to be a member, only that your chances will improve slightly if you're a member of a professional body or if you have some publications

Currently not applying, just know those who are. I was also concerned with the 300kb requirement as it becomes difficult to have the transcripts clear at that resolution. Have you tried using smallpdf online converter?

Please, i need a good advice from the good people on this thread.. I studied PHYSICS EDUCATION and I graduated with 2:1, do i stand a chance if i apply since my first degree is not in engineering or Oil and Gas core courses..
Due to the dynamism of physics, i have this strong belief that i may still be considered if i carefully choose a course that pertain to my first degree.
GEOPHYSICS is my best choice.
Re: 2020 PTDF Overseas Scholarship In France, Germany, China And Malaysia by lucexy: 3:21pm On Dec 05, 2019
This is how I normally do mine.
I use a picture editing app(RealDraw or Photoshop) to reduce the size. For example, if it was 8000 x 5000, you can reduce it to 900 x 700 or even less. That way, when you use a jpg to pdf converter, you still get less than 100kb for one document. And even when you zoom out, the quality is still good

I already achieved 100kb for a document.

I have 10 document to upload and convert to a single page pdf doc. Thats over 1000kb way overboard the 300kb limit.

Or can I just upload just 4 documents?
Re: 2020 PTDF Overseas Scholarship In France, Germany, China And Malaysia by ExpertNLer: 6:12pm On Dec 05, 2019

Though not applying, but wish to contribute.

You can merge the documents together using pdf merge (since it is academic transcript).
Then, the quality will be in its original form. You can use any of the 2 software mentioned above to reduce the size of the document while still retaining the quality of the documents.

NB: I was opportuned to see where Adobe or photoshop was used to reduce a document, the size obtained was less than 1.5MB but the picture quality was great as if the documents was up to 50MB.

Alternatively, after reducing the document with any of the software, you can use any of the online software to reduce it further... something like pdf resize (though I feel confident that any of the software mentioned by the previous person would definitely give you the desired results, if you know how to work around it).

just an opinion of mine and you are not bound to take it.

Please how did u create the profile?

Seeking the Phd Scholarship. Preferably in the UK.

Created PTDF Application Profile Here ( https://scholarship.ptdf.gov.ng/ )

And for NIN (Verify Me) I created a profile in order to get the verification report here ( https://verifyme.ng/auth/signup )

However, after creating the verify me profile and ordering for a NIN Verification Report, the site is to take you to a secure platform for payment of 500 naira to get the verification report. It is this stage that is a problem. The Secure platform wont open to allow for payment. The page keeps booting and rebooting with no payment coming up.

Without this NIN Report attached, it is almost impossible to go forward. What I want to do is to just attach any document for now and then continue with the application. Hoping I shall sort out the NIN Report as time progresses.
