Four leading commercial banks in the country have offered free scholarships to first 100 candidates that wrote this year’s unified tertiary matriculation examinations.
The banks are offering the top 100 UTME candidates scholarships to study in tertiary institutions of their choice across the country.
The board stated this in its weekly bulletin, adding that such offers were a “demonstration of the acceptability and confidence in the board’s products.”
The Head of Information of JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, confirmed the offer to reporters in Abuja on Monday, adding that some candidates would have the opportunity of their names appearing on the lists of the four banks because of their UTME scores.
Dr. Benjamin said: “About four banks have indicated interest to sponsor top 100 candidates. Two banks have requested for top ten and two for top hundred candidates.
“We will submit the names of the candidates to the banks this week.”
