    1. admin says

      Hello Bassey,
      I’ll suggest you look for scholarships that offer preference to disable. I’m not sure about most of them but there are programmes that offer financial aids with preference for disability.
      I wish you all the best.

  3. Connecticut says

    Nigeria is not on the list of countries eligible to receive this scholarship, pls remove it to confuse people.
