Award for bestEconomics student introduced

The Fiji National University (FNU) has signed an agreement with economist Professor Tiru K Jayaraman to honour the top student in Bachelor of Commerce in Economics every year with Professor TK Jayaraman and Family Prize.

Professor Jayaraman has made a donation of $10,000 for the purpose of seeding the establishment of the Endowment Fund through which student cash prizes will be determined.

He has been teaching Economics in Fiji since 1998 and his contributions to research on Pacific Island economic issues are well known. ‘A Single Currency for Pacific Islands’ is one of his many publications about the Pacific Island countries.

FNU Vice Chancellor Professor Nigel Healey while signing the agreement said, such awards add value to the most successful students’ resumes while strengthening their employability.
