There are thousands of scholarships online that Nigerians can apply for. However, the problem is that it is difficult to find authentic scholarships let alone apply for them.
Even after you scale this hurdle and register, you may get stuck because of the requirements to apply and this has to a very large extent discouraged some Nigerians from applying for these scholarships. Thus, these scholarships get little or no applications.
