Olympic Scholarship for Athletes

The Nigeria Olympic Committee provides financial and technical assistance to a limited number of athletes proposed by the NOC to the Olympic Solidarity. The beneficiaries are privileged to access high level training and participate in qualification championships in preparation for the Olympic Games. Under the London 2012 programme, 9 Nigerian athletes benefited while 12 elite athletes are programmed to benefit from the Rio 2016 Scholarship for Athletes initiative.

Team Support Grant

We provide financial assistance to one National Team in their preparation for qualification and participation in the Olympic Games. Our NOC has continued to utilise this window in supporting the qualification of our team sports for the Olympic Games. The NigerianBasketball Men’s Team was the beneficiary of this programme ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games. For the Rio 2016 Olympics, the Beach Volleyball Team is currently proposed.
