The MTN Foundation announces applications for the 2024 Scholarship Programme.

The scholarship is dedicated to aiding Nigerian students in their academic pursuits, it offers support through three specialised scholarships for students in Science, Technology & Mathematics (STEM), for Blind students, and for the top 10 UTME scoring candidates across various disciplines.
