In a press release issued by the Department of Army Administration on Wednesday in Abuja, it was disclosed that the screening is scheduled to take place at the Army Headquarters Command Officers’ Mess 1 in Asokoro, Abuja.

This scholarship initiative is part of the welfare programs designed to ensure access to primary, secondary, and tertiary education for the offspring of personnel who lost their lives while in active service.

The statement encourages both new applicants and existing beneficiaries seeking to advance their educational pursuits, along with those who were unable to participate in the 2022–2023 exercise, to actively take part in the screening process.

Part of the statement reads, “Documents required for the exercises are, handwritten application for sponsorship containing the names of the children; letter of admission of the beneficiary, and the last school report card/results of the beneficiary.

“Others are letter of confirmation from the school, university, or polytechnic that the child/beneficiary is a pupil or a student; a birth certificate of the beneficiary; and a death certificate of the deceased personnel.

“Also required are Part 2 Orders: publication of death; condolence letter; notification of casualty signal; Nigerian Army application for sponsorship form duly completed by the last unit; and formation headquarters of the deceased personnel.

“Four recent passport photographs of the beneficiaries; Passport photograph of the deceased personnel; and bank account number and sort code, and telephone number of the beneficiary’s surviving parent or administrator.”

It said that those responsible for the screening could be reached at 08169355766 for any inquiry.
