I have a lot of readers who are MTN Subscribers. That’s the reason I’m sharing this post. Even if it’s not useful to you, you should surely have some that you know who has this dream.
This is the Original MTN’s statement about the program:
The MTN Football Scholar is a youth soccer camp that focuses equally on football and academics. It provides a platform for Nigeria’s best student athletes/soccer players that are academically sound – to earn scholarships to American universities.
It is a scholarship program that connects MTN with the positive dreams and aspirations of Nigerian youths for international exposure in Soccer and education.

All candidates must bring their birth certificates, transcripts/term reports from JSS3 through SS3 (or up to current grade level), and proof of WASSCE results (if applicable) to the audition venues.
MECHANICS OF THE PROGRAM
The programme would kick-off with auditions in 8 key cities with a knock out series which would set-up quarter final clashes. Participants who get to this stage of the competition do a mock exam and successful candidates proceed to the Academy for 3 weeks where students get intensive football and academic training for a period of one month.
The month long training prepares students for the SAT and TOEFL examinations. Those who succeed in crossing this stage would play a final football competition under the watchful eyes of international soccer scouts to select top winners. Runners-up will have the opportunity of a week’s exposure to other international soccer academies-again to create platforms for scouts to fish out these raw and great talents.
Will take place in the following cities:
