OBA's Scholarship: List Of Qualified Candidates For The Final Screening Released

This is to inform all applicants for the 2016 Senator Obong Bassey Albert Akpan Scholarship Scheme that the scholarship board has officially released the list of shortlisted candidates for the final screening stage. Subsequently, those who applied for the scholarship and have their names listed under qualified applicants will receive an invitation for the scholarship aptitude test.


The inaugural edition of Senator Bassey Albert's Scholarship Scheme witnessed a greater number of applications received from the nine local government areas in Uyo Senatorial District.


A list containing the names of qualified applicants for the scholarship program has been published. Names of applicants whose applications have been disqualified due to age, level of study, submission of invalid documents, etc were also released alongside with the qualified names, but on a separate label.

There was a total of 1044 applications received. There were four (4) duplicate copies which were deleted, leaving a total of one thousand and forty applications for first stage screening based on eligibility criteria earlier posted here

After the first stage of screening, the applications were categorised into two important labels. They are the qualified and unqualified applications. The qualified applications had a total of 615 while there were 425 unqualified applications. Therefore, it means that a total of 615 applicants have been guaranteed a slot for the final stage.

Uyo local government area has the highest number of qualified applicants closely followed by Ibiono Ibom LGA, that is 136 and 122 respectively. Nsit Atai recorded the least number of applicants with only 38 applicants of which 22 qualified and 16 were disqualified.

The fact that this scholarship scheme is strictly for Uyo Senatorial District made it possible for an institution located in the heart of the district to produced the most qualified applicants based on institutions of learning. It is none other than the University of Uyo. Some institutions produced only one applicant. Notably, Institution of Management Technology, Enugu with Johnson Blessing as the only applicant, and Godfrey Okoye University producing one applicant from computer science department who has been disqualified.


Qualified applicants will be contacted for the scholarship aptitude test which will take place soon.

If you need our help to check for your name in the list, simply comment with your name, school and registration number in the comments section below. Good Luck!
