  1. The OCI Foundation received nearly 700 applications across all four categories (CUS Initial, CUS Renewal, CBH Initial and CBH Renewal).


  1. To ensure fairness, the OCI Foundation’s Scholarship Board reviewed every submission. Judging by the supporting results and family essays received, most of the applications were of very high quality.


  1. Unfortunately, the scholarship slots on offer from the OCI Foundation are limited. Therefore, not all who submissions who merit the scholarships can be shortlisted. The Foundation will do its best, however, to provide compensation where necessary.


  1. Even though all four categories of the CYFED SCHOLARSHIPS are reserved for indigenes of Anambra State in Nigeria, the high number of deserving submissions received from outside the State has made the OCI Foundation create an additional category, which will allow us to accommodate one or two scholars that are non-indigenes of Anambra.


  1. Winners in this new “Non-Anambra Indigenes” category can come from any part of Nigeria and will enjoy the full benefits available to those in the other four categories. This category will be available every year henceforth.


  1. It should be noted that the OCI Foundation has now increased the scholarship amounts attached to the CUS (from NGN 70,000 to NGN 100,000 per annum), bringing them to par with the amounts available to CBH winners.

The CBH scholarship was created in hononur of the late Bradley Hope, an Australian teenager whose family, the Hope Family, has partnered with the OCI Foundation since 2021 to lift the lives of Nigerian youths. Details of of the CBH, including the live sand times of Bradley Hope, can be found HERE.
