Application for the fourth edition of the scholarship programme of Senator Theodore Orji representing Abia Central zone has opened.
According to a press release by his Chief Liaison Officer, Hon. Ifeanyi Umere, the scheme is for undergraduates from the six Local Government Areas in Abia Central senatorial district.
Interested undergraduates are to apply on-line and later submit a ‘print -out’ copy of their application form at the #32 Ojike street constituency office of the Senator as soon as possible.
Wawa News Global recalls that each beneficiary of the annual event receives N100,000 for his /her academic pursuit.
Ten beneficiaries are selected from each of the six LGAs in the zone with five slots reserved for undergraduates from indigent families, while the other five slots are based purely on merit /academic excellence.
No fewer than 180 under graduates in various tertiary institutions have so far benefited from the scheme since its inception in 2015.
The former Governor said the gesture was borne out of his passion for youths in his constituency, stressing that education empowerment remains the best form of empowernent for any society.
Orji whose youth empowerment programme while holding sway as former Governor was outstanding, has promised to sustain the scholarship scheme for as long as he is in the Senate as a way of “giving back to society “.
