FG Approves N75,000 Stipend Per Semester To Students Studying Education
The Federal Government has approved a cash of N75,000 per semester for students pursuing degree programmes in Education at Nigerian public universities.
Also, as part of the government’s deliberate effort to attract the best brains into the teaching profession, Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) students will receive N50,000 as a bursary per semester, as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari last year.
The announcement was made by Malam Adamu, Minister of Education, on Tuesday, October 5, at the World Teachers’ Day celebration in Eagle Square, Abuja.
“Undergraduate B.Ed / B.A. Ed / BSc. Ed students in public institutions will receive stipends of N75,000.00 per semester, while NCE students will receive stipends of N50,000.00 per semester.
The Federal Government should find a way for state governments to provide automatic employment for NCE graduates at the Basic Education level,” he said.
