The European Union has announced the extension of its Erasmus plus postgraduate scholarships to both academic and non-academic staff of Nigerian higher institutions. This move is aimed at fostering knowledge sharing and professional growth, as stated by the EU ambassador to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Samuela Isopi.
Since 2004, approximately 800 Nigerians have been sponsored under this program, making it a success story that the EU takes pride in. The Erasmus+ Scholarship Programme is seen as a beacon of opportunity, not only for expanding educational horizons but also for building bridges of knowledge and promoting cultural exchange.
For those interested, including higher education institution staff, detailed application procedures and eligibility criteria can be found on the official Erasmus+ Scholarship website. This initiative not only contributes to individual development but also strengthens the educational bonds between Nigeria and the European Union.
