The School of Politics, Policy and Governance has announced late admission into its #Classof2024 till October 20, this year.
The school, a unique Public Leadership Preparation initiative, says the late admission window into the #Classof2024 aligns with its mission to attract exceptional talents and students.
It says, “The deadline for applications using the late application window is extremely tight and ends on October 20, 2023. Admission to the SPPG is highly competitive through a rigorous selection process conducted entirely virtually.”
To fast-track the admissions process, the school says applicants are expected to fulfil all admission requirements on or before the application deadline, while offering limited scholarship slots to qualified applicants.
Providing details on who should apply, the school says all applicants must have a minimum educational qualification of a Bachelor’s degree of Higher National Diploma and can demonstrate commitment to public/political leadership. Ability to successfully execute projects will be an advantage.
The applicants, it adds, are required to provide personal statement of not more than 750 words, curriculum vitae of not more than two pages and details of two recommenders (peer, community leader or employer, who must have known them for at least six months and can vouch for their character and suitability for the programme).
However, applicants are advised to upload complete application, as application without recommendation letter will be disqualified.
Established in 2020, SPPG is building a pipeline of new and disruptive-thinking political class, to transform the quality of public leadership in Africa.
It educates present and future leaders that are committed to public good and ready to be stewards of the well-being of all Nigerians.
The school delivers an unconventional multidisciplinary curriculum that is aimed at producing a massive base of ethical, competent and capable public leadership with the requisite knowledge and skills to solve complex development problems in the continent.
SPPG has, so far, graduated three cohorts, including the #PioneerClassof2021 (160 students), #Classof2022 (133) and #Classof2023 (184).
According to the school, consistent with the SPPG.org mission, many of its graduands ran for elective offices across various parties, while others pursued leadership careers in the public and private sectors as well as civil society.
