If your answer is yes, I am glad to say you have clicked the right place.
In this article, we have treated all you will need to know about the Enugu State scholarship. It covers the different categories of scheme offered by the State, the requirement for each category and how you can apply.
I have been through the university and I have a first-hand experience of what it means lack money, especially when you cannot afford your schools fees and accommodation fees. It will not only torture your emotions and thoughts, but it can also put on pressure to do something perhaps, illegal which you would not do on a normal day.
As such, it is pertinent you grab a scholarship opportunity like the one presented here, especially when you know you do not have the financial muscle to pull through the university without a financial hitch.
