We have various scholarships here in Redeemer’s University geared towards improving and rewarding academic excellence among our students, as well as catering for their welfare.

Some of these scholarships can be applied for while others are endowed.

RCCG-RUN Scholarship

Due to the unprecedented increase in the number of applicants for the scheme, there is a need to ensure the sustainability of the scheme. One of such ways is the introduction of an “activation fee” of N10,000 payable by new entrants, as well as returning students who wish to continue to benefit from the scholarship scheme. This is on a sessional basis provided other conditions of renewal are met such as minimum CGPA, minimum attendance at church services, and good conduct among other conditions.


Applicants/beneficiaries who fail to pay this “scholarship activation fee” shall not be considered for processing of the scholarship by the RCCG mission and the relevant university apparatus as handled on a first come first serve basis. This fee shall be remitted into the coffers of the RCCG mission via a special payment link on the student portal.
