Lagos State Scholarships Board on Friday dissociated itself from a website, www.scholarshipworld.org. The board, in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Mr Sesan Adebadejo, said that it had no affiliation with the website.
He said that the fake website has been charging N500 each from unsuspecting members of the public to purchase scholarship forms. He urged the general public, particularly students of Lagos State origin, not to patronize the said website.
Mr Adebadejo stated that the Lagos State Scholarships Board does not grant scholarships to Primary and Secondary students, while that of undergraduates/post graduates are merit-based.
He said that members of the public are enjoined to direct all enquiries on award of scholarships by the state government to the board’s office at 254 Ipaja Road, beside the NYSC Orientation Camp, Agege, or email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
