The PF Scholarship program provides free education in collaboration with partner schools to economically challenged students who show academic promise. This is achieved either through one-off grants or long-term admittance into the PF Scholars Program.
PF Scholarships are awarded each year after beneficiaries have been academically assessed, parents interviewed, and background checks have been carried out on their families to ascertain their economic situations. Shortlisted candidates are allocated to partner schools near their locations in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states.
Successful candidates are required to achieve a minimum score of 70% in 5 subjects including Mathematics and English as well as regular attendance, good behaviour and parental involvement to maintain their scholarship. The goal of the PF Scholars Program is to support the scholars all the way till graduation from university.
One-off grants are usually given to tertiary students who are economically challenged. They can also be offered to secondary or primary students who meet the academic requirement but might only require one-off and not long-term academic support.
The adopt-a-PF Scholar program allows for individual sponsors to adopt a particular child or children, and be part of their progressive journey, all through the program. A sponsor/ adopter will be able to review the child’s termly report, and based on other conditions, may be able to communicate directly with the child.
Scholars can be adopted for up to 19 years. The exact length of adoption would depend on when the child is adopted and their choice of course at the university. Adopting multiple scholars can afford adopters the option of mentorship and coaching alongside other benefits as agreed with the Foundation.
Become A Partner School
The Pistis Foundation scholarship model places PF Scholars in carefully selected private primary and secondary schools and government run tertiary institutions, to achieve her goal of providing quality education to her PF Scholars.
Many of these schools buy into the PF vision, and work in collaboration with the Foundation making them PF Partner Schools.
PF Partner schools are the first beneficiaries of our TEN teacher training and welfare programs, usually run in collaboration with other partner institutions.
