CBN To Offer N500 Million Grant to Graduates, Undergraduates with the Best .

We are pleased to announce to the general public that the CBN is to offer N500 million grant to graduates, undergraduates with the best Entrepreneurship Pitch in Nigeria.

Interested persons should carefully read through this article to know how to apply.

In a bid to reduce unemployment, the Bank of Nigeria has developed the Tertiary Institutions Entrepreneurship Scheme (TIES), in partnership with Nigerian polytechnics and universities to harness the potential of graduate entrepreneurs (gradpreneurs) in Nigeria.

This was disclosed by the Bank of Nigeria in a circular, titled ‘Guidelines for the implementation of tertiary institutions entrepreneurship scheme’, dated October 2021.

The apex bank stated that the goal of the TIES is to enhance access to finance to undergraduates and graduates of polytechnics and universities in Nigeria with innovative entrepreneurial and technological ideas.

What the CBN is saying

The apex bank stated that the development of TIES was to address the trend of graduates seeking white collar jobs and turn their attention to the creation of jobs.

CBN stated that “the Scheme is designed to create a paradigm shift among undergraduates and graduates from the pursuit of white-collar jobs to a culture of entrepreneurship development for economic development and job creation.”

Regarding the grant, the CBN would distribute N500million among the top 5 tertiary institutions with the best pitch.

The apex bank stated that it, ”shall constitute a Body of Experts (BoE) from the private and public sector for the biennial regional and national entrepreneurship competitions to evaluate entrepreneurial and technological innovations submitted by Nigerian polytechnics and universities. The Body of Experts (BoE) shall recommend projects with high potential and transformational impact for the grant award.”

  • The Scheme would be operated for 10 years in the first instance (not exceeding 31st December 2031) depending on the complexity of the project.
