Ityavyar extends Scholarship Scheme to all Benue students

Nigerian Concord Newspaper

In a bid to cushion the economic impact of Covid-19 on parents and students, the Benue State Commissioner of Education, Prof. Dennis A. Ityavyar, has extended his scholarship scheme to all Benue students schooling in tertiary institutions across the country.

A statement by his Media Aide, Alabar Clement Tersoo, confirmed the development.

The Commissioner had last year set a committee to work out modalities to disburse scholarship to Jechira students schooling in higher institutions but has felt the need to extend it to all Benue students to ameliorate the economic impact of Covid-19 on parents and students upon the beginning of new academic activities.

“Prof. Ityavyar having come from the academic background understands the need for proper education which is the bedrock of the development for every society. The distribution of forms commences on 1st of February 2021” the statement reads in parts.
