Those who apply with leadership potential are what Teach for Nigeria is searching for. You will therefore be required to produce three essays outlining your motivation, leadership experience, and long-term objectives.
This necessitates you to think back on your past encounters and future objectives. Outline your professional goals and your accomplishments as a person over the years. We are interested in learning how the fellowship can help you pursue your ideal career path. When writing the application essays, we recommend that you follow the STAR approach (situation, task, action, and result).
Share your experiences working and volunteering, but don’t lie or make up accomplishments. Should you do so, you will be discovered throughout the selection procedure.
Since we are seeking individuals with exceptional academic credentials, we will only take into consideration candidates who have earned at least five credits at the O-level and a minimum of 2:2 at the university level.
When it’s time to submit your application, you’ll need to give your birth certificate, S.S.C.E. (WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB), BSc certificates (statements of results from 2019–2023), and NYSC. Make sure there are no errors in the documents.
We suggest that you proofread your essays thoroughly before submitting them and that you take your time completing your application. Verify your answers for spelling and grammar mistakes, stay away from informal language, and make sure they are always pertinent to the questions.
Your chances of being accepted into the fellowship will be greatly influenced by how you apply.
It’s crucial to invest time in crafting a compelling application that will set you apart from the competition.
