European Union awards postgraduate scholarship to Nigerians.

European Union announced that it has awarded postgraduate
scholarships to one hundred and thirty-five young Nigerians to study
in various European universities.
According to the EU Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms. Samuela Isopi said
the scholarship is awarded under its flagship educational programme,
Erasmus.
The number of scholarship recipients’ places Nigeria in the number
one spot among beneficiaries of the EU postgraduate scholarships in
Africa, in the past five years, and among the top five globally.
Ms Isopi noted that many Nigerians do not know about this
opportunity due to Nigeria’s size and as such, the EU has created
focal points in different parts of the country in order to reach more
young people.
