It has come to the notice of the Management of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) that some unscrupulous individuals are frantically making efforts with a view to defrauding unsuspecting Nigerian students.

This fraudulent information has been circulating on various online/offline platforms, suggesting that TETFund is giving a grant of N20,000 (twenty thousand naira to Nigerian students.

It states further that the grant is part of TETFund 2021 budget to support the 2 million Nigerian students, urging students to register before registration closes on the 6th of June 2021.

They are operating under a website displayed as follows:


The Management of TETFund dissociates itself from the above claims as it is another of similar attempts by criminal elements to deceive, not only the students but the public as well, into falling prey into the hands of these faceless individuals.

TETFund however enjoins anyone with relevant information that could lead to the arrest of these criminal minded individuals to alert the Nigerian Police or reach out to the Fund on the following address: info @
