The Lagos State Scholarship Board has called for applications from indigenes of Lagos state studying in any tertiary institution in Nigeria to apply for the bursary award.
Bursary award was re-introduced in 1984 by the administration of Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande in line with the administration’s general populace outlook. The dwindling nature of the Government’s financial resources and the various projects competing for attention of the administration influenced the decision to replace the then scholarship award with bursary to all State indigenes in tertiary institutions within the country, rather than just a small number of beneficiaries enjoying scholarship prior to the advent of the administration.
