The Republic of Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) office in Nigeria has awarded post-graduate scholarships to six Nigerian students to study in Korea.
Mr Sang Jung, Chief Resident Representative at the agency’s office in Abuja, disclosed this on Wednesday during the orientation programme for the awardees.
Jung told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the scholarships would provide the opportunity for the students to learn from Korea’s experience in poverty reduction and socio-economic development.
He said that KOICA was an agency of the Korean government responsible for the delivery of grants and technical cooperation programmes in developing countries.
He said that 16 Nigerian students had in the last five years benefited from scholarships awarded by KOICA.
