Common mistakes made when applying for scholarships

 

  1. Applying when not eligible: Scholarship schemes are targeted at a specific class of students or audience (200 level students, Medical students, graduates of specified courses etc). Your application is bound to be denied if you do not belong to the desirable audience. Ensure you meet the scholarship requirements before applying.
  2. Providing inaccurate or inconsistent information on the application form: Ensure you fill in your information accurately. Even the smallest detail counts, if you were admitted in 2012, enter 2012 not 2013. 
  3. Not providing complete documentation: Some scholarship schemes specify required documents to be uploaded, ensure you have all listed documents available and upload appropriately.
  4. Submitting multiple applications: Create one account and apply using that account only. Applications from a single candidate using multiple accounts will surely be detected.
  5. Uploading pictures as passport: Upload an appropriate passport photograph not a picture.
  6. Applying to the wrong scheme: For scholarship schemes with multiple scholarship categories i.e Host-community based Scheme (e.g Nigerian Agip Oil Company scholarship scheme) and Merit-based scheme applications (eg Agbami Medical and Engineering Professionals scholarship) simultaneously open from the same sponsor, ensure you apply to the scheme you are eligible to appropriately. 
  7. Using a computer centre operator/friends to complete your application: You know yourself better than anyone else, do not hire a computer centre operator or engage your friends to apply on your behalf.
  8.  It is highly competitive: Thousands of candidates apply for scholarship schemes regularly. This means a good chance that you are not selected even after meeting all the requirements exists. To enhance your chance of selection, ensure you avoid these common mistakes.

If you find out you have made any of these mistakes, don't wait till you are disqualified! 

Kindly send a complaint to Scholastica Admin stating your complaints or requests.

please I want to ask, can an undergraduate who got admitted through predegree apply for scholarship?.... i tried using that, it showed me predegree/ DE/JUPEP but when i clicked on it, it shows DE reg nos and grades of which i don't have. i want to ask, should i use UTME reg number instead and jamb score as grade or I choose UTME instead of predegree (I was admitted through predegree)
