Apply Sociology Challenge




We want to encourage sociology students with game-changing ideas for their communities. Students/student teams will apply with their most innovative proposals. Top two finalists will get access to funds with mentorship from lecturers. 



About the Challenge

Although they are not experts yet, students of the department of sociology are thinking big and they need to be heard.

Whether it is in entrepreneurship, humanity, a global challenge or an immediate societal problem, the challenge will be darted at sociologists to pitch how they wish to or have been address(ing) a problem by applying the tenets of sociology and why they deserve the prize.






The winning idea which will be selected by the panel of judges gets N10,000.
