Lagos State Government Bursary award was re-introduced in 1984 by the administration of Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande in line with the administration’s general populace outlook.

The dwindling nature of the Government’s financial resources and the various projects competing for attention of the administration influenced the decision to replace the then scholarship award with bursary to all State indigenes in tertiary institutions within the country, rather than just a small number of beneficiaries enjoying scholarship prior to the advent of the administration.

This is to notify Lagos State indigenes in Tertiary Institutions all over the country that online application form for the State’s 2015/2016 Bursary Award is out.

Each applicant is to pay and obtain a receipt of One Thousand Naira (N1,000.00) only, except Law School and School of Maritime Academy students that are expected to pay Two Thousand (N2, 000.00) only for the form.

Thereafter, scratch card to access the online form will be obtained at the Lagos State Scholarship Board, 254 lpaja Road, beside NYSC Orientation Camp, Agege on presentation of the receipt of payment.
