Secondary School Studies
In most West African Countries, studies before the tertiary institution are either classified as primary or secondary schools; with its various set of curriculums.
So this school system might not be the same with international students from several developed countries that have “High Schools and Colleges” as an alternative to Secondary schools studies; as we have them in Africa. In some countries, these could be termed ‘scholarships for high school seniors’ but here, we are discussing Secondary school scholarships for 2020.
Only secondary school students are eligible to apply for these scholarships. But here are scholarship opportunities for other levels of studies (home or abroad).
If that was your question, it is obvious that you are more proactive than most students here, who have been searching for the links to start applying for opportunities. This is why we have the tips below to guide you through the application, selection and other pre-awarding stages.
To apply and stand a chance of winning these scholarships, here are what you must do right:
a). Early Application
Most scholarship bodies and application systems respond to entries using first-come-first-serve methods, and due to the high level of competition among applicants, you stand a chance to fail if you fail to submit your scholarship applications on time.
What this has to say is that you need to find a reliable source of being updated on scholarship opportunities; which is what our Newsletter or Social Media Groups will definitely assist you with. Kindly subscribe below, with your email, to be updated directly when any of these scholarship portals open for application.
b). Take your Studies Serious
Secondary School scholarships, just like every other opportunity that require multiple applicants, only need exceptional candidates.
In other words, your grades and results are the first selling point that you need to be distinguished with. Make sure that you study to show yourself approved and eligible to be funded with these scholarships.
This, however, does not establish a sole fact that your results or grades are the only factors required for your scholarship and application success. What elevates you above other applicants can also be seen in your ability to stand whatever test that the scholarship may prescribe.
c). Get used to the Test
