One of the tenets of Golibe Festival is to give back to society. The Golibe Philanthropy scheme seeks to provide a platform for individuals/ entities desirous of granting scholarships to students in Onitsha to be identified and to connect the potential recipients to them. This platform therefore advertises these scholarships and helps the Awardees organize a free and fair selection process. It must be noted that the awards and criteria for selection are all subject to the desires of the Awardees and Golibe Festival has no influence on the Awardees desires. Both Awardees and Interested candidates willing to participate in any of the scholarships listed below must absolve Golibe Festival of any liabilities whatsoever related to the scholarship award.
Registration for the scholarships is free and must be done online. To register simply click on any of the scholarships below. Registration closes 15th November 2018. Winners of the scholarships will be announced on 24th December 2018 during the festival launch activity.
