Nigeria: Tulip International Colleges awards full scholarships to 24 students

A total of 24 mathematics enthusiasts from Nigerian primary, and junior secondary schools will get full secondary school scholarships to attend any of the Nigerian Tulip International Colleges. 

Fevzullah Bilgin, NTIC’s Managing Director, announced this at the event. 

The annual National Mathematics Competition, now in its 19th year, is organized in collaboration with the National Mathematics Centre and supported by Access Bank Plc. 

The first round took place across Nigeria’s 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory, on Saturday (FCT).  

According to Bilgin, the ANMC sought to provide 24 excellent students with a 100% scholarship for their entire secondary school years at any NTIC school branch. 

“Through its annual National Math Competition, NTIC has been supporting excellent teaching and learning of mathematics at the elementary level for 19 years and generating stronger capacity,” he stated. 

“Traditionally, ANMC has only been for Primary 5 and 6 students entering JSS1, but this year’s edition is unique in that it also includes the first edition of JSS3 ANMC”.  

“We chose to limit the number of participants according to the COVID-19 procedure, so this edition of ANMC has roughly 15,000 kids as participants.”  

“The competition, which began in 2003 and is now a prestigious nationwide competition responsible for churning out tremendous talents in Mathematics,” the MD added. 

“For years, NTIC has been the sole sponsor of this competition, in partnership with the National Mathematical Centre”. 

“Following the second round, the top three positions will get a full-tuition scholarship to NTIC as well as cash prizes ranging from N100,000 to N200,000. Awards of up to N100,000 will be given to the math professors of such kids. As well as giant-sized photocopiers, desktop computers, printers, and smart phones, their schools will be rewarded.”
