                      “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”
In the year 2000, we established a post secondary school Scholarship Fund to benefit Egba and Yewa students attending Nigeria universities and Colleges. To accesss the scholarshp funds.
1. Applicants must be an indigene of Egba or Yewa
2. Must have gained admission to a university or post secondary         institution.
3. Must be above average academically, and,
4, Must also demonstrate need to receive the scholarship.

We believe and hope that this token financial support will make a difference in the life of the students. That same year the fund was established, scholarships were awarded to 14 students attending universities across Nigeria. Since then, scholarships have been awarded every year to students across Egba and Yewa.
