Shell Niger Delta Postgraduate
Masters in Oil and Gas Scholarship for Nigerians

Brief Description

SHELL NIGERIA STUDENTS SCHOLARSHIP

Education,
as all parents and guardians admit, is a long-term investment with an equally
long gestation period, but it is one of the best legacies to bequeath to
individuals, groups and society. That has been the belief of Shell Nigeria since
1952. In 2018, approximately $5.9 million (N1.78 billion) was invested in
scholarships by The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited
operated Joint Venture (SPDC JV) and Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production
Company (SNEPCo).
