I would believe that you are on this page because you want to know more about the Nasarawa State scholarship? If your answer is yes, then I must reassure you that you are on the right page.

In this article, I have carefully given you every bit of all you need to know about this State’s scholarship: the eligibility and requirements, the documents you need to apply, and how you can apply.

Unfortunately, scholarship is not currently on and that is why I have brought you other great alternatives from which you can choose.


The Nasarawa state government has been known to support a large number of their indigene students through the payment of this bursary to deserving students through the scholarship Board.

The Board has been performing its major functions by giving financial assistance to Nasarawa State indigent students in tertiary Institutions.


There are a few factors which are very important for an application for this scholarship to be considered and eventually successful, some of which include:

  • The applicant must be a student who is of Nasarawa State origin. 
  • You are required to be at a minimum age of 18 years of age. 
  • If you are not up to 18 years of age, you MUST submit your JAMB registration number.
  • You should be a registered full-time student of any Public Tertiary Institutions (State or Federal). 
  • Diploma, Masters, or Ph.D., NCE, and other students are not eligible; only undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
  • Only students of approved public and private-owned schools (University, Polytechnics, and College of Educations) are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants must have a very good CGPA to be able to apply.


The documents required to submit an application include:

  • SSCE /GCE O’LEVEL certificate. 
  • Original Jamb admission letter. 
  • Admission letter of current institution. 
  • Information on year, course of study, and duration of the course. 
  • Original local government indigene certificate. 
  • Birth certificate. 
  • Original school fees receipt.


The application for the state scholarship is carried out online via the official online website which is www.nassarawastatescholarshipboard.org.ng there is an online form which is filled and can be submitted online or to the address of the scholarship board. 


After 2014, the Nasarawa State government scholarship has been defunct till date. There has been no hope given on when this scholarship will resume again.

The website and indeed all relating to this scholarship have been unreachable since the said year. After the disbursement of the bursary in 2014, the Board had complained bitterly of inadequate funding, and as such has not been able to carry out the scholarship in recent times.

Fingers crossed that hopefully soon, this will be a story of the past. Ensure you stick with us by subscribing to our email lists, for updates.


Since the Nasarawa State scholarship as it stands is currently not working, there are other scholarships available to Nigerian students.

These alternative scholarship positions cut across federal government scholarships and scholarships funded by oil and gas firms in Nigeria. Let’s explore now!

Federal Government Scholarship

The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Ministry of Education annually invites interested Nigerian students to apply for the Federal government scholarship.

The scholarship is awarded to both Nigerian undergraduate and postgraduate students. The application date and deadline, however, vary with years.

Therefore, if you are a student studying in any Public tertiary institution (State or Federal), and have the requirements for this scholarship, why not grab the chance.
