As we publish every year, the NNPC/SNEPCO Scholarship 2020 has announced for qualified Nigerian students in tertiary institutions, who demonstrate needs in finance for their education in any of the registered institutions.
For a very long time, students from different states in Nigeria have received a series of scholarship funds from top oil-related companies in the country, as part of their social responsibilities.
These funds for education include tuition fees and other allowances for students who have been awarded the honour of recognition by the firm.
About the SNEPCO Scholarship
SNEPCO has always merged with the NNPC and a few other firms in giving meaning to the academic journeys of multitudes of students in Nigerian Universities and others.
The SNEPCO Scholarship 2020 is a follow up to the scheme that has lasted the test of time amongst these young scholars who need finance to their education in Nigeria.
The funding continues until completion of studies stemming from their aim, which is centred on improving academic excellence together with improving skills of Nigerian youth.
The benefit of the scholarship cannot be overemphasized as it offers great relief to parents and guardians who struggle to pay school fees and fund other academic needs in school.

Why Sciences and Engineering?
The fact that science course, medical and engineering are considered most for scholarships in developing countries, does not erase the significance of other disciplines.
In most African nations, the needs for scientific and technological improvements (if not revolution) is realistic.
To develop these world leaders who can proffer the needed economic solutions and and to fill the already existing gaps, governments and institutions have been offering scholarships for students to acquire the necessary skills.
Science and Engineering are core among career paths that help in the development of skills that defeat the ever-evolving world.
And in a narrow opinion, the SNEPCO Scholarship 2020 still stick to the original path of providing less privileged students with the opportunities to strengthen their might of solving problems, through medicine, sciences and engineering.
Most beneficiaries of the scholarship funding are selected to further their courses in developed counties (mostly Europe).
In case you fall into this category, it is wise to start planning your studies abroad, with the needs and possible resources for international education.
But first, there are just a few numbers of most needed scientific career paths that every student should be aware of; to tackle global needs for scientific growth.
