Applications are invited from interested persons for the third phase of the Kiisi Trust Foundation Ogoni Scholarship.
The Kiisi Trust was established in 2009 as part of a United States Federal Court Settlement.

The Trust Fund is dedicated to the benefit of the Ogoni people in Nigeria and will focus on initiatives for education, health, community development, educational endowments, skills development, agricultural development, women’s programmes, small enterprise support, and adult literacy.
