The American University of Nigeria (AUN) will hold its scholarship examination for newly accepted students for the 2016/2017 academic session on Saturday, July 30, 2016. The university has increased new student scholarship awards to 67.
A total of 36 scholarships will be awarded to candidates with the highest scores in the 2015 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination from the 36 states, and one scholarship will be awarded to the candidate with the highest score in JAMB UTME nationally. Another 30 scholarships will be awarded to five candidates from each of the six geo-political zones of the country under the university’s regional scholarships programme. Winners of the JAMB-based scholarships will be selected based on results of the 2015 UTME, while the regional scholarships winners will be selected primarily based on their performance on the 2015 national scholarship examinations.
