PTDF Scholarship Scheme 2012 / 2013 for MSc, PhD and Undergraduate Programs

Posted on Thu 06th Oct, 2011 - --- (72 comments)

The Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) is a parastatal of the Ministry of Petroleum Resources established by Decree 25 of 1973 dedicated for the purpose of development, promotion and implementation of petroleum technology and manpower development through research and training of Nigerians as graduates, professionals, technicians and craftsmen in the fields of engineering, geology, geosciences, management, economics and relevant fields in the petroleum and solid minerals industry in Nigeria or abroad. Copied from:

Our mission is to train Nigerians to qualify as graduates, professionals, technicians and craftsmen in the field of engineering, geology, science and management in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria or abroad. We have a vision to serve not only as a vessel for the development of indigenous manpower and technology transfer/acquisition in the petroleum industry but also to make Nigeria a human resource centre for the West African sub-region.

PTDF Undergratduate / Postgraduate Scholarship Programme 2012 / 2013

To ensure a steadfast implementation of this mandate, PTDF is inviting applications from suitably qualified candidates for the MSc and PhD as well as Undergraduate Scholarships, under the 2012/2013 PTDF Scholarship Scheme. Scholarships will be awarded for studies in areas listed below, in the United Kingdom, France and upgraded Universities in Nigeria for the 2012/2013 session. However, the Undergraduate level will be awarded for studies in Nigeria only.

Application Forms can be accessed online using an ATM card or through purchase of a scratch card from designated major branches of First Bank of Nigeria Plc in all the States and FCT, upon payment of a NON-REFUNDABLE sum of N1,000 (One Thousand Naira Only). Instructions on how to access the form online is clearly stated on the backside of the cards.

PTDF however wishes to inform applicants that the Overseas Scholarship Scheme was instituted as a short term measure to address identified skills gaps, pending the outcome of the various capacity building efforts being made to enable our domestic universities effectively handle the onerous task of grooming qualitative professionals in the oil and gas related disciplines. With the numerous upgrade programmes executed by the Fund in some Federal Universities in Nigeria, emphasis has shifted to training Nigerians in-country. Consequently, only a limited number of candidates will be sponsored overseas and the rest in Nigerian Universities listed below.

What criteria did PTDF use in the choice of the listed university? Does it mean undergraduate students in other universities outside the list are not Nigerians? Why are our leaders enjoying creating inequallity and disunity in the country? Yet, the Ministry of Education and the President are there watching this senseless and unholy act.

This is no doubt a very good program, but why is it favouring only those who are engineering inclined and not management and other areas? What is the fate of those who read agricultural Economics and other agriculture related disciplines. I think the program should be reviewed to favour other discipline also. Thank you.

i am a student of the Department of Sociology, university of Ibadan,Nigeria. I just finished my M.Sc program with a distinction 70.7 and I am going direct for my P.hd in the same university. Although, I had upper credit in Professional Diploma in Statistics (67.5); second class upper (5.4) in B.Sc in Statistics in the university of Ibadan.
Sir, I read through your advertisement and found out that PTDF don't include humanities like sociology into their scholarship curriculum.
I want a scholarship to assist me to further my phd here in Nigeria or abroad if it is going to be possible.
I am from Delta state and from Isoko south local government area and from Enwhe town precisely.
I would be very grateful if u will considered this for me and also waiting for your reply.
Thank you sir
