A stable and democratic society is impossible without widespread acceptance of some common set of values and a minimum degree of literacy and knowledge on the part of most citizens.

Education is today largely paid for and almost entirely administered by governmental bodies or non-public profit institutions.

The Kwara State Scholarship Board with the help of the State government had provided a programme for their indigenous students.

If you are an indigene of Kwara state, this scholarship, although I would prefer to say the ‘bursary award’ is for you.

So why don’t you scroll down with us as we have explained in detail how you can apply and requirements.
