A proposal has been made for students with maternal links to the Nadroga/Navosa Province be eligible for provincial scholarships.

The proposal was made by the provincial education committee chairman Reverend Orisi Terei to the council members to include students who had maternal links for provincial scholarships at the Nadroga and Navosa Provincial Council meeting at Nahigatoka village in Nadroga yesterday.

“This year there was not many who have applied to the Provincial scholarship, as they have gained access to TELS (Tertiary Education Loan Scheme) so we have some balance in our scholarship funds,” Reverend Terei said.

“Compared to this year, the border line pass has also been accepted by TELS in previous year we usually exhaust our budget.

“So our scholarship distribution will be focusing on the Vasu (maternal links) to Nadroga who have been here for the past 10 years.”
