NHEF Scholars Program

The NHEF Scholars Program


Our Vision

We aim to substantially increase the number of well-educated Nigerians assuming positions of leadership in Nigeria and around the world. To achieve this goal, we seek to address the skill gaps in key sectors of the economy by providing talented Nigerian university students with a variety of programs ranging from critical on-the-job training to hands-on skills workshops. With the help of our partner firms, we provide world-class training and support to our Scholars, enabling them compete effectively in the job market.


Our Scholars

NHEF Scholars represent a select cohort of students from each of our partner universities. They have demonstrated academic excellence and well-roundedness in both professional and extracurricular pursuits. We expect our scholars to be fully devoted to community Service, philanthropy and making a lasting impact in society. Through this program, they will become successful future employees with an understanding of the roles and responsibilities attached to their industry of choice. As of 2019, we achieved the milestone of nearly 200 scholars , and we hope to develop even more promising Nigerian students in the future.


The Program

The NHEF is in partnership with prestigious companies and organizations across a broad range of industries in Nigeria. Our key industries are Financial Services, Consulting, Law, Technology and Engineering. We aim to broaden the scope of our industry tracks over time. We believe our partnerships with these firms will offer invaluable exposure to our scholars.

The NHEF Scholars program is open to students in their penultimate year at our partner universities. Eligibility varies depending on your course of study. However, if you are not certain, we recommend that you submit an application and await our feedback.
