Delta Govt Wraps Up 2023 Bursary Payments, 30,116 Students Benefit

The Delta State Government has confirmed the disbursement of bursaries for the 2022/2023 academic session to 30,116 students hailing from the state who are studying in various tertiary institutions nationwide.

Dr. Godfrey Enita, the Executive Secretary of the Delta State Bursary and Scholarship Board, disclosed that more than 30,000 Delta State students from 195 tertiary institutions across Nigeria have been awarded the Delta State Bursary for the specified session.

The Delta State University Abraka recorded the highest number of beneficiaries, totaling 8,330, followed by the University of Benin and Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe-Oghara, with 3,650 and 2,686 beneficiaries respectively. Dr. Enita expressed gratitude to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori for authorizing the release of funds for the disbursement.

He further mentioned that although 42,269 students applied for the Students Special Assistance Scheme (Bursary) for the 2022/2023 session, only 30,116 students met the eligibility criteria, which includes being a student of Delta State origin in 200 level and above, possessing a National Identification Number (NIN), and maintaining a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.2.

“Beneficiaries of the bursary are students of Delta State origin in Federal and State owned universities, Polytechnics, colleges of Education, schools of Nursing, Health and Monotechnics, as well as Private Universities and Polytechnics.

“This gesture of Delta State Government’s inclusion of privately owned tertiary institutions among beneficiaries of the state bursary award is borne out of the Government’s desire to extend such opportunities to all Deltans irrespective of their institutions.

“It underscores the second plank of Gov. Sheriff Oborevwori’s M.O.R.E agenda “Opportunities for All”.

“Our profound appreciation to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori for approving the release of funds for the payment which will go a long way in providing for the needs of the students.

“The bursary award also reflects the Governor’s prompt attention towards the well-being of Delta’s young men and women.

“It is expected that beneficiaries of the bursary award will continue to excel in their academic pursuit and be worthy ambassadors of the Delta State.”
