The management of Delta State University, Abraka is calling for application for scholarships for indigent students of DELSU. As for students who do not know what an indigent scholarship is about, see the definition below.
An indigent scholarship refers to a financial aid program designed to support individuals who are in financial need or facing economic hardship, often to the extent that they may struggle to afford education or meet their basic living expenses. The term “indigent” itself is often used to describe someone who is impoverished or living in poverty.
Indigent scholarships are typically awarded based on the recipient’s economic status, taking into account factors such as income, family size, and financial responsibilities. The aim is to provide educational opportunities to those who might not otherwise be able to pursue further studies due to financial constraints.
These scholarships can cover various educational expenses, including tuition fees, books, and living expenses. The specific criteria for eligibility and the amount of financial aid provided can vary depending on the scholarship program and the organization or institution offering it.
