Jim Ovia Scholarship Program

To start off about any information about the Jim Ovia Scholars Program remember that as of 2016 all applications are only accepted online.

Which students will the Jim Ovia Scholars Program be awarded to? Any Nigerian student from a background where the economic growth has been unsatisfactory. With the Jim Ovia Scholarship, these students will be able to accomplish a higher education within the Nigerian workforce. How the scholarship uses the tactical term ‘money for college’ is by issuing out a massive sum to cover the student’s overall expenses. Even over time the chance to pursue various online universities or online colleges will become reality.

Now undergraduates as well as graduates have the right to apply for the Jim Ovia Scholarship. As stated when it comes to an undergraduate student, they must have achieved some sort of academic success yet come from a lower income/economically under appreciated background from Nigeria. As an undergraduate student from Nigeria, it is seen as your duty to help and repair the future of the country. More than likely showing an online degree would benefit within the undergraduate position.

For a graduate applying for the Jim Ovia Scholarship, one must already have successfully acquired a bachelor’s degree. And as the same in the paragraph above, the student will be seen as an aided individual for their country’s progressive growth towards the future.

Meanwhile, researching online universities or online colleges may make another impact when going for a renewal towards the Jim Ovia Scholarship. When it comes to filling out an application form, leave no line blank. For instance if you received an online degree towards economics, write it down. Or an online degree for Government, Anthropology and the list goes on and on, write it down on the submission form.

Another note, all applicants must be a citizen of Nigeria before submitting.

Each year up to 100 spots are up for grabs for the Jim Ovia Scholarship Award. Again this is for each year, so if the previous year a submission of yours was not accepted, please resubmit and attempt again. Your chance at a brighter future is within reach.

Another advantage is the fact that there is no application fee what so ever. The Jim Ovia Foundation recognizes that if at any point within their submission process you are asked to submit a fee, contact them through their enquiry.

As part of the application process a vaild I.D. will be needed. As well as these list of items below:

  • Passport Photo
  • Original Secondary School Certificate
  • An official original letter (not photocopied) letter from your school/Head of Department stating the following: CGPA, Matriculation number, Course Title, Gender, Department of Study, Your full name.
  • Original JAMB certificate
  • A valid student ID for your host institution

And of course a correctly completed application form. Remember to throughly read through before submitting because even a simple mistake can be made in the process of filling out.

Deadlines have already passed for this current year, however it is never too early to get a head start for next year. The deadline is from September 15th till November 15th each year.

  1. Am a Zambian citizen aged 36yrs and working for the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW). My job is to conserve Wildlife and Natural Resources in the Kafue National Park and the surrounding Game Management Areas (GMAS). Department of National Parks and Wildlife former known as ZAWA, an Organization which was mandated by the Republic of Zambia under Wildlife Act of NO. 14 of 2015 to look after all Natural Resources on behalf of the government and all the people .The National Park in which am working from is the fifth largest Parks in the World covering about 22,480sq kilometers .Our National Park harbors 158 species of Mammals, 515 species of Birds, 36 of Amphibians and 58 fish species .Am a Wildlife Police officer (WPO) who is trained to do field patrols which are intended to foster resource protection in Zambia. I have worked for 15 years as a Game ranger since 2003 until now. With me I’ve studied both High and Advanced certificate in nature conservation and have a Diploma in Managing Community Development Projects and Organizations. At the moment am attached to research department here at Chunga, where I manage the law enforcement data base and handles the spatial analysis using GIS application. Am also doing research with an external researching team (ZCP) the Zambia Carnivores Program. I am applying for funds from your good organization amounting to $11,000.00 for my research. Let me ask whether your good organization will provide me these funds and my research is supposed to be done here in Africa in the great Kafue National Park. If you’re good organization have capacity to extend your helping hand and sponsor me to undertake this research of Litter management. You know here in Africa particularly the park am working from, the park has no fence and hence wildlife and humans live together and wildlife wonder in the nearby villages destroying crops and sometimes cause death to human life. It is against this background that, I would want to try and solve this problem through lobbying the government and other stakeholders to try and solve this problem and I can do this mostly after obtaining the degree qualification and apply the skills and knowledge in the field. We should look after the natural resources jealously for both the future and present generations. Kindly, let me know whether this is possible for your good organization to help me funds amounting to $11,000.00 I have mentioned above here so that it can help me undertake the research activity. Kindly I have some sponsors as you can see from the receipt attached here with from the wilderness wildlife trust showing how much they have paid towards my tuition fees. And please there is even my acceptance letter from the university. Please let me know if this is possible the organization can help me $11, 000.00 USA Dollars to undertake the research down here in Africa. Please am a bread winner and I love nature and I hope your good organization can help me these funds.
    High regards.
    Victor.
