Leaving home to pursue furthers studies in the capital city wasn’t easy for two Bua brothers.

Shavneet Nand 24, and Rajnit Nand 18, lost their dad two years ago and that was the motivation that triggered them to work hard.

Older brother Shavneet was helping his brother sort out his application at the Tertiary Education and Loans board office in Suva yesterday.

Rajnit was submitting his application to pursue a Bachelor in Mechanical engineering at the University of the South Pacific which is a three year programme.

“My family won’t be able to pay this amount of money for my tuition fees so this scheme will help us tremendously,” said Rajnit.

His older brother, Shavneet was under the multi-ethnic scholarship three years ago and completed a diploma in Architecture from the Fiji National University.

Both brothers attribute their success to their hard working mum who still lives in Nabouwalu, Bua.

The brothers encourage all students to take up the opportunity and to work hard in their studies.

Travelling all the way from Matawailevu village in Nalawa Ra to apply for the scheme was former Ra High School student,Ilivasi Sadua.

Mr Sadua was accompanied by his father and small sister who left their village at six o’clock yesterday morning and reachedSuva around 10am.

“For me getting this scheme is really important as I want to help my family as my father is a farmer,” said Mr Sadua.

Mr Sadua will be pursuing a Diploma in Electrical engineering at FNU, Samabulacampus which is a two year programme.
