A scholarship is usually a monetary award based on criteria given by the awarding party. It can be given on basis of academic|
merit, athletic ability, financial needs or other criteria specific to the group giving the award. For example, there are many
scholarships available for only a specific minority including African Americans minority groups and women. Sometimes college
scholarships are given in a contest manner.

Publication of the 2012 GCE ordinary and Advanced level results is delayed due to a fire disaster that razed the results of thousands of candidates in the Extreme North of the country.
Some 2411 candidates shall re-write the GCE Ordinary and Advanced Level in Mora, Extreme North Region with headquarter in Maroua. This follows a fire incident this week that affected the Administrative building of Government High School (Lycee Classique) Mora where corrected scripts of these examinations from some twelve centres were kept.
The Minister of secondary Education (MINESEC) today signed an Order authorising a special session of the examination to be held in the affected centers to enable victims to re-write their papers. The Director General of Public Examinations in the Ministry said everything possible would be done for the special session to commence from Tuesday July third to July seventeen. He added that only candidates registered in the affected centres would be allowed to sit in for the examinations.
