The Nigeria Higher Education Foundation(NHEF) is a non-profit foundation dedicated to enhancing the quality of higher education within Nigeria.
Through collaborations with universities, non-governmental organizations(NGOs), and corporations, as well as the application of our programs designed to target key areas that would lead towards the advancement of our purpose, we strive to rise up to the challenge bestowed upon us by our founders. Established in 2004 by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, we have made it our mission to enhance the ability of Nigerian universities to help address and solve Nigeria’s most pressing social problems, to enable economic development, and to promote a lasting and stable democracy. With our devoted board comprised of Nigerian-Americans and American nationals with careers in the Academic, Business, Fundraising, Legal, and Medical Industries, and with the help of our generous donors, we continue to promote peace, security, growth, and prosperity within the Nigerian community through the improvement of higher education
