FG Sends 73 Students Abroad under BEA

Government has sent off 73 students to Hungary to study under the Bilateral Education Agreement (BEA).

Out of the 150 applications received by the scholarship board, the 72 students who were selected, are expected to depart Nigeria this weekend.

Speaking at the pre-departure briefing ceremony in Abuja on Thursday, Minister of State for Education, Dr. Yusuf Sununu, described the scholarship as a reward for excellence and an encouragement to brilliant Nigerians who could not afford to sponsor their studies in foreign countries.

He said the provision was in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to make quality education accessible to all Nigerians.
