The Reginald Aziza Scholarship Award was conceived as an impactful way to shape the Nigerian society by grooming the next generation of thought-leaders in the legal profession. At its core, the scholarship aims to identify the brightest talents going into the Nigerian Law School, fund their tuition fees, provide personalized support and mentorship through their studies, and link them with opportunities for employment and further education in the best universities in the world.
The scholarship is extremely selective. Applicants must have completed their undergraduate studies at the university at the time of applying, and must be reasonably confident that they will be mobilized to the Nigerian Law School, and of their ability to resume at the beginning of the academic session.
The ideal candidate must be able to demonstrate exceptional academic ability, strong leadership potential and financial need. Academic ability will be assessed by examining the candidate’s final results and academic transcripts. Performance will be examined relative to the pool of candidates who have applied in that particular year. Consequently, although there are no fixed performance benchmarks, candidates will be required to have a very strong Second-Class (Upper Division) degree at the minimum. Leadership potential and financial need will be assessed by examining the candidate’s Curriculum Vitae and from discussions with the candidate’s referees.
