Once selected, the Scholars will undergo a comprehensive interest schedule/psychometric analysis to gain insights that will allow experts to provide them effective guidance in their educational careers.

The scholarship amount is set up as an interest generating trust fund available to the Scholar to draw upon for a period of seven years from the date of the award.
