SHORTLISTED APPLICANTS!!!

12thΒ April, 2019

UPDATE ON SENATOR OBA SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME!!!

We are pleased to announce that we are set for the qualifying examination for the second phase of our scholarship scheme.

We have shortlisted 1150 candidates to partake in the qualifying examination slated for May, 2019.

A total of 1449 students applied for the second phase of the scheme, with 62% of the applicants male, while 38% were female. This is a significant improvement to what was obtainable in 2016, where 79% of the applicants were male, while 21% were female.

Applicants who did not meet the eligibility conditions have been disqualified. The criteria for screening was based on: age, origination, nature of institution and programme.

We observed that about 300 of the applicants were above the specified age limit, while 24 were non indigenes. 34 of the applicants screened out were students from Private Institutions of learning, which is against the policy of the scheme, which revolves around State and Federal owned institutions.

Some applicants were disqualified as a result of their inability to complete their application accurately in line with the specified requirements. Many were observed to have uploaded irrelevant documents and supplied conflicting information with respect to their year of study.

No fewer than 50 applicants were final year students, and were automatically disqualified based on logical reasoning that beneficiaries of the second phase will only be able to access funds from the 2019/2020 academic session. It is of note that the final year students would have graduated by the end of the 2018/2019 session.

Students who applied for the Scholarship are required to visit the portal here, to check their application status. Date and venue for the examination will be communicated to successful applicants.

    Please if an applicant is finally awarded the scholarship. Is it throughout the period of schooling or is there a certain amount to be paid to the applicant?

      Dear Aniebiet, the screening was automated so what you see is the information you supplied when applying. The examination slips were not manufactured. You were all asked to supply accurate information for this reasons or risk disqualification. Send an email to requests@senatoroba.org officially stating you made an error while applying and now your slip is affected, state your correct details as well. If it will be treated, you will be attended to.

    It's very worrisome that I played you with all my might in the just concluded general election without getting a kobo during ur electioneering campaign tour. As a student of political science, I strongly kicked against selling of my constitutional right (vote) which was rampant within part lines that contested the election. Why should I get money before voting? I voted you into office because of social amenities like this. But here I am not shortlisted. Howbeit, those shortlisted could be the same people that did not go out to vote or sales out their vote which it's an offence in electoral act. Thank you my senator for I shall recoupe in another scheme.

      Dear Rawlings, Your message is unclear but If you applied to the scheme knowing you were not eligible as clearly stated then you will be automatically disqualified. The system does not know anyone, it shortlisted based on the scholarship policy and requirements. You may follow this page and the social media pages for future initiatives you are eligible for

    Please sir, i am short listed for the 2019 second phase of senetor OBA' s scholarship exams, but my examination slip is mistakenly sent to another email. That is, sent to richedet72@gmail.com instead of it to be sent to edetrich72@gmail.com. The mistake no doubt may be from the cyber cafe that i got registered, so please sir with due respect, i humbly request for the reforwarding of my exam slip to my email (edetrich72@gmail.com), I will be immensely happy if my request is granted. Thanks and God bless you.
