Five Benefits of being an MTN Scholar
Being an MTN scholar has many perks. In addition to receiving a grant worth N200,000 annually until graduation, there are loads of benefits. From having access to unique learning modules to enjoying free workshops and training sessions, MTN’s scholarship offers attractive opportunities.
Here are some benefits of being awarded an MTN scholarship grant:
- Access to a wide range of learning platforms
Being an MTN scholar offers access to learning platforms that help to upscale and acquire relevant knowledge to be employable and grow small businesses. The scholarship scheme ensures that scholars are skilled to excel not only in school but also after graduation.
2. Access to webinar and workshops led by prominent industry leaders and entrepreneurs
MTN scholars also enjoy access to webinars and workshops where they learn from prominent industry leaders and entrepreneurs. This allows them to effectively plan for what they want to achieve upon graduation.
- Access to platforms with networking opportunities
Networking is just as important as having access to a good education. Life after graduation is usually a daunting time for graduates. At this point, newly graduated students are looking for opportunities to practice what they have learnt in school and the process can be a little tasking. This is why MTN Foundation gives its scholars access to platforms with networking opportunities to give them an edge.
- Access to training upon graduation
Upon graduation, MTN scholars are treated to an employability workshop where they receive training from organisations such as Oracle, Google, Cisco and Jobberman. The employability workshop is designed to give scholars an edge after school.
- Access to the MTN Alumni base
The MTN Alumni base is a robust network of like-minded dynamic youths. The platform positions youth for opportunities for self-improvement and entrepreneurial empowerment. They also get the opportunity to participate at the Youth Entrepreneurship Development Programme where they get to pitch for a loan to fund their businesses.
