The Lagos Mathematics Olympiad Contest for Undergraduate Scholarships is the entry point for full access to our undergraduate scholarship and mentorship opportunities.

Each year, high school seniors participate in the contest, and we select the top 30 to 40 students whom we sign into our academic label and become responsible for their education. These students will be sponsored for undergraduate studies at leading federal universities in Nigeria, in specific quantitative fields. Participants must be SS2/SS3 students and mathematically sharp.

Through the program, we identify talented students who show early promise, and we sponsor them for undergraduate studies in Mathematics and later for graduate studies in specific fields, such as Economics, Finance, or related areas. Therefore, only students who aspire to study quantitative courses are welcome. We will give special consideration to students who plan to study Mathematics at the undergraduate level.

The contest brings together some of the brightest young minds from Nigeria’s secondary schools and provides a platform for them to showcase problem-solving skills and creative mathematical abilities. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to challenge themselves and gain valuable experience in a fun and intellectually stimulating environment. This competition fosters a spirit of healthy competition and provides opportunities for students to get scholarships to cover the cost of undergraduate studies in Nigeria and graduate education abroad.

Ideal participants in the competition are academically talented low-income students from disadvantaged neighborhoods and public secondary schools in Nigeria. Students meeting this profile will be given preference above and beyond others.
