Eight lucky students who received scholarships to study in India under the Indian High Commission’s Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) scholarship programme were yesterday reminded to focus on their studies.

The programme’s director, Kishan Kanojia, whilst speaking to the students at a briefing yesterday advised them to make good use of the opportunity.

“Do not go there just to make friends; focus on your studies and make good use of the opportunity,” Mr Kanojia said.

He also advised student against spending money unnecessarily.

“Sometimes there will be delay in allowance so save money for rainy days,” Mr Kanojia said.

Scholarship recipient Fiji Sun journalist Wati Talebula said it was just the opportunity she needed in order to further her studies and broaden her knowledge in her area of work.

Ms Talebula was awarded a scholarship to study for a Bachelors in Journalism at the Archaraya Institute of Graduate Studies in Bangalore.

“I couldn’t believe it when I read the email that I had been accepted; an opportunity like this was just what I was praying for,” Ms Talebula said.

The 19-year-old said she thanked the ICCR for being the window to that opportunity.

Three other Fiji Sun journalists are currently studying in India under the same scholarship programme.
