Here is a perfect opportunity for undergraduates residing in Nigeria. The Zeribe Nwosu Foundation (ZNF) 2024 Annual Essay Competition for Nigerian Students is an ideal opportunity for authors to showcase their skills and win prizes.

This essay competition will require authors to reflect on their own experiences or perspectives during and after their undergraduate program. They can achieve this by gathering information through consultation with other undergraduates to be able to collect all relevant data on the subject. This will help them to articulate the challenges/issues associated with undergraduate education in Nigeria.

In addition, as an author, you (the author) will be required also to suggest possible solutions and, more importantly, submit original work. Zeribe Nwosu Foundation encourages all authors to use this opportunity to learn and seek feedback from peers or superiors.
