Quality education develops an individual’s mind and character and teaches the skills to succeed in life and contribute to society. The Alex Otti Foundation (AOF) recognizes this link and actively seeks to build a virile Nigerian community through meaningful educational interventions, awarding undergraduate scholarships to indigent students yearly.
The Foundation, therefore, calls for applications from interested candidates for the 2021/2022 edition of its undergraduate scholarship scheme.
Scholarships will be awarded based on strong personal academic background, leadership potential, and a demonstrated desire to use the acquired knowledge to contribute to societal development.
Upon completion of their studies, Winners should apply their talents and knowledge in improving the lives of others. Over time, the Foundation expects its scholarship beneficiaries to form a strong network of leaders who will individually and collectively contribute to the wellbeing of Abia State in particular and Nigeria in general.

- Siblings (that is, children who share the same parents) of current Alex Otti Foundation scholars are not eligible and will not be until their sibling’s current Scholarship runs its full course
