Edugrant is a non-governmental organization dedicated to providing quality education to underserved students through scholarships funded by individuals and corporate donors. The organization was founded on the belief that quality education is critical to shaping the youth into worthy members of society.
Edugrant was motivated by the significant educational disparities in Nigeria and is on a mission to invest in young people by providing them with the education they deserve.
Over the past few years, the organization has hosted several programs and training for less privileged students; these include digital skills, financial literacy, web design, coding, and career guidance.
Scholarship provision is the core mission of Edugrant, and they have successfully awarded scholarships to several students in different tertiary institutions in Nigeria, including Lagos State University, University of Port Harcourt, University of Benin, University of Nigeria Nsuka,
National Open University, University of Enugu, FUT Minna, Anambra State University, University of Ibadan, and FUT Akure.
As the unemployment rate and lack of skilled labour are on the increase, Edugrant is committed to creating more scholarship opportunities for underserved students by collaborating with as many individuals and organizations as possible; thereby helping students to achieve their education goals and dreams.
