The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is set to launch a scholarship scheme for children of its ministers and members wishing to study in the Redeemer’s University (RUN). It is no secret that the Visitor to the university and General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye has severally stated that his vision is that Redeemer’s University students are to be on full scholarship provided by the alumni. He has however acknowledged in recent past that this vision is yet to be realised due to the relatively young age of the alumni.
Investigations have revealed that Pastor E.A. Adeboye already has several students studying in the Redeemer’s University whose education is personally funded by him and not the church. It is therefore laudable to note that the church is finally doing something for its ministers and members and also, the university.
To benefit from the scheme, there must be an active participation in the scheme by members, parents, students, etc (at an appropriate level according to income). This participation can be as low as 500 monthly or more. A recent whatsapp message revealed that the church and the university will soon make a public announcement on the scholarship scheme but it seems application for admission is in progress.
The Scholarship is not a full one but has high ranges from Pastors to members.
All candidates seeking admission to Redeemer’s University can visit adms.run.edu.ng to complete the online application and note the dates for general screening which scholarship applicants must undertake as well since they must qualify for general admission first before qualifying for scholarship.
