ADJUSTMENT IN THE IFC SCHOLARSHIP OFFER AND TRAINING DATE

Following the popular demand from majority of interested trainees who seek to participate and be beneficiaries of the IFC partial scholarship support for the Solar PV Training, we wish to inform all trainees and the general public of changes being made with respect to the partial scholarship offer. The IFC partial scholarship offer has been increased to 75% but will now cover ONLY TUITION FEE and the training duration of 4 weeks for SPVI & SPVIS have been adjusted to 3 weeks, while Mini-Grid Design will be for 5 weeks, with training days spanning now from Mon. - Sat. of every week. 

These changes were informed by many trainees who could afford to get alternative accommodation arrangement in Lagos but having challenges to raise their part payment of N125,000. In order to make it easier for each trainee to afford the training and be a beneficiary, Trainees are now to pay only 25% of the new tuition fee of N150,000, which is  N37,500, for the 3 weeks training, while the balance of 75% of the tuition, which is N112,500, will be paid by IFC. Trainees are now expected to make arrangement for their own accommodation.
