About Orlean invest host community scholarship scheme

The gift of education is one of the greatest investments that can be made in the future of our communities; one that helps our students and teeming youths realize their dreams and aspirations. The Host Community scholarship scheme was established by Orlean Invest Africa Limited in line with its mission to create a harmonious environment in which the host communities and the company become fundamentally independent; where understanding is mutual; with a commitment to growth and development.

The Orlean Invest scholarship scheme is a spot scholarship scheme which annually provides academic grants to students from its host communities. Students are required to apply on an annual basis, and most suitable and qualified students are given the opportunity to benefit from the programme. The scholarship being managed by the group’s Community Relations unit under the Government and Public Affairs Department; has steadily increased the number of beneficiaries through the years.

The scholarship scheme is one of the group’s cardinal programmes in educational empowerment for youths from its host communities. The communities include: Onne, Ogu, Rumuokwurusi, Amadi Ama, Ogbum-nu-Abali, Ikot-Ansa, Old Netim and the Warri Port Host communities. We are looking for students in secondary and tertiary institutions who are pursuing higher learning so that they can play a part in making their societies and the world a better place.

While we seek to better our scholarship scheme, we have developed the online registration portal to ensure credibility and transparency in the selection process for this year’s programme. However, based on the memorandum of understanding with some of the aforementioned communities, they are exempted from the online application process. The exempted communities include, all Warri Port Host communities, Old Netim, Ogbum-nu-Abali, Amadi Ama.

All applicants must meet the eligibility criteria and follow the under listed process.
