James Hope College offers an extensive scholarship programme. In any cohort we offer scholarships to new entrants.

 Scholarships are offered to students who meet the entry age requirement, display exceptional academic ability and consistently attain high grades.

James Hope College is an educational initiative of the Jim Ovia Foundation – the foundation is committed to provide a holistic learning programme, shaping and molding the future leaders of Nigeria at a subsidised rate. The College offers a  world-class education from an endowment fund facilitated by Mr. Jim Ovia, the Founder and Chairman of the College.

The James Hope College is also a recipient of scholarship donations. See some of the activities below.

Dangote Scholarship Programme

Dangote Foundation has continued in its support of James Hope College with an annual scholarship package of ₦20 Million. The Chairman of the Dangote Foundation, Alhaji Aliko Dangote initiated this commitment in 2014 during his visit to the school. He promised that his Foundation would extend its intervention to the school through scholarship offers. In 2015, the CEO of the Foundation, Zouera Youssoufou visited the school for the presentation of the donation. According to her, the issue of education is an area the Dangote Foundation is vested in due to its commitment to economic development.

On Saturday, 28 June 2019, the Founder/Chairman of James Hope College Foundation, Mr. Jim Ovia, committed to funding the university tuition of all 30 pioneer graduates of 2018/2019 graduating set of the James Hope College.

Duke of Edinburgh Programme

Sanitation expedition

The Duke of Edinburgh program is a highly beneficial programme for teens all over the world. During some weekends, all DoE members at James Hope College partake in the sanitation expedition. Focus is usually on the streets right outside the school and surrounding environs. Participants do good to make a clean sweep.

Every student-member is equipped with necessary tools to carry out the task – gloves, shovels, rakes, hoes and baskets to clean up. At the end of the day’s work, all participants return to the school premises to take their rest and continue with the activities for the day.

Teaching service

Students usually volunteer for teaching exercises as part of the Duke of Edinburgh programme. In February 2018, the students volunteered at Nosiere Primary school, Agbor. The students prepared beforehand with all necessary teaching materials (including lesson plans, lesson notes, science apparatus and chalk board writing materials).

Student-volunteers taught the Primary 4 classes Mathematics (Division of numbers), English (Stress Pattern), Science (Water project on evaporation and condensation), Social Studies (Employment) and CRS (Jesus’ crucifixion) and educated the Primary 5 pupils on English (Debate on a familiar topic), Mathematics (Uses of percentages), Agricultural science (Pest and diseases of crop plants) and CRS (Jesus Conquered the devil) subjects. The lectures lasted for two hours. The teaching experience was fun and interactive for volunteers and participants.
