Nyere M Aka Book Scholarship (2019)

We are pleased to extend you the opportunity to apply for the Nyere M Aka Book Scholarship. This $1,000 book scholarship will be awarded to a Nigerian-American senior(s) preparing to attend college and universities in the USA.

Nyere M Aka is a 501 (c)(3) organization  inspired by the need to provide assistance through philanthropic initiatives in Nigeria. In parallel, Nyere M Aka also seeks to build a bridge of culture awareness and appreciation for Nigerian Americans pursuing education in the USA while balancing the realities of dual cultures. In that breath, the idea of establishing a book scholarship was established.


It is our hopes that this book scholarship not only helps your education pursuit, but also inspires you to replicate this support in the future whether you are here in the states or traveling home to Nigeria.
