COPDEM Starts Scholarship Scheme For Undergraduates, Vows To Invest More On Education



Coalition for the Protection of Democracy (COPDEM), has announced a new scholarship scheme for undergraduates in Nigeria called “COPDEM Scholarship Program”.  Aimed to support tertiary students, the scheme is coming on stream on the backdrop of growing costs of tertiary education in Nigeria, making such cadre of education inaccessible to Nigerians.

Speaking on the scheme, Kevin Japkor, one of the officers of COPDEM said that the initiative stems from COPDEM’s commitment provide educational opportunities to deserving students while fostering a culture of democracy, critical thinking, and civic engagement.

“By investing in the education of young minds, COPDEM aims to contribute to the overall development of a well-informed and empowered citizenry”, he said.

COPDEM is a coalition of Nigerians in and outside Nigeria, impassioned by the pressing need for active involvement in the development of partisan politics. It found its roots, in the 2023 general election, marked by electoral malpractices and infractions on the 2022 Electoral Act.

According to the coalition, the COPDEM Scholarship Program takes a significant step towards building a brighter future for Nigeria, where education and democratic values go hand in hand. This initiative reflects COPDEM’s unwavering commitment to fostering positive change and empowering the next generation of leaders in Nigeria.
