The NNPC/SNEPCo National University Scholarship Scheme provides a great opportunity for qualified Nigerian students to pursue their education with financial support.

It’s wonderful to see companies like Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Limited investing in the educational development of young talents. If you or someone you know is eligible, I’d encourage applying and taking advantage of this opportunity.
