The Tertiary Scholarship and Loans Board (TSLB) began its two-week national roadshow in conjunction with the Ministry of Education on Wednesday.

The roadshow is to create awareness among Year 13 students and the public regarding various scholarships and loan schemes provided by the board.

Awareness campaign would be held in 15 designated centres around the country.

Students would be picked from their respective schools and transported to the nearest centre and dropped back at their schools.

All transport costs would be met by the Ministry of Education and students are to liaise with their school principals on these special sessions.

Board chairman Dixon Seeto said they were trying to make it easier for students, parents and guardians to access the board facilities.

“We try and cover every school by setting up a centre in an area where everyone can converge and access our facilities for loans in particular,” Mr Seeto said.

He said the aim was to enlighten students and remind them of what they wanted to do in the future.

“We also want to remind them of the opportunities they have with regards to the National Toppers Scheme (NTS) and the Tertiary Education Loan Scheme (TELS).”

He urged everyone to make use of the opportunity and attend the roadshow.

“It’s open to everyone; to parents, guardians and all those who might have queries about the scheme,” Mr Seeto said.

He said during the last two days, thousands of students in the Central Division had turned up at the centres set up in Adi Cakobau School in Naitasiri, Vunimono Hall in Nausori, Suva Grammar School and Rishikul Sanatan College in Nasinu.

Yesterday the board’s teams were at Penang Sangam Hall in Rakiraki, Sigatoka Methodist High School, Swami Vivekananda in Nadi, Tilak High School in Lautoka and Xavier College Hall in Ba.
