The David Oyedepo Foundation scholarship program is our major
platform for promoting our vision and goals. The scholarship program
awards scholarships to qualified individuals who are indigenes and
residents of African countries, and have been offered admission to
specific universities in Nigeria.
The DOF scholarship program grants
individuals the opportunity to acquire a first degree at top schools in
the African continent. It grants individuals the opportunity to build up
the leadership potentials that are so evidently lacking in the leaders

development initiatives.

“I believe education is the
key to unlocking the destiny of Africa. A major investment in the
education of our people would go a long way in improving the economic
situation of many African Nations.” Dr David Oyedepo
