NIIT Nigeria Scholarship Award 2016

NIIT Nigeria has once again started to accept applications for the 2016 (17th) edition of its yearly scholarship awards which are aimed at equipping people looking to advance their career and better their life with in-demand information and communication technology (ICT) skills.


About the scholarship

The NIIT Nigeria Scholarship Award 2016 is the 17th edition of this information technology (IT) scholarship scheme. NIIT is a leading global ICT training institution, which has been operating in Nigeria since 1999 when it set up shop in Ikeja, Lagos. It has since spread its tentacles to other cities in the country and this has added national colouration to its scholarship awards in a way. It claims to train over 16,000 students annually in Nigeria.

For the first time since inception, certain ‘futuristic programs,’including DigiNxt, Java Enterprises Apps with DevOps, and Big Data, will be offered under the NIIT Nigeria Scholarship Award 2016. The global ICT training institution says this decision is informed by changing manpower requirement in the industry.

Who is Qualified to Apply?

The NIIT Nigeria Scholarship Award 2016 appears to be an all-come scholarship award, which points to possibility of having some people offered partial scholarships or discounted fees. The training institute says the following classes of people can apply:

* School leavers
* Undergraduates
* Graduates (employed, underemployed or unemployed)
* Professionals
* Entrepreneurs, and even
* Dropouts

You can see this is an all-is-welcome award, possibly with your cash in your pocket to pay along the way.

Application and Deadline

Applications for NIIT Nigeria Scholarship Award 2016 can be done via NIIT Nigeria website ( Alternatively, you may get an application form from one of NIIT’s centres spread across Nigeria. After applying online, a Hall Ticket will be generated for you — this will be used to gain entrance to a relevant examination venue.

Good luck!

    1. I do not think so. You may need to get in touch with them. Usually, you’d be told on the day of the tests that you should check your result at a centre nearest to you from a specific date.

    1. Sorry, I do not think there is any cut-off. You will need to contact a nearest centre and confirm your performance. That will determine the class of ‘scholarship’ that would be offered to you.
