THE Provincial Government of Central Islands Province (CIP) is eyeing to assist scholarships for CIP’s students studying at the Solomon Islands National University (SINU).
First focusing on to assist is the untrained teachers of the province who do not have qualification said CIP’s Premier Hon Patrick Vasuni.
He said those who wish for funding their tuition fees and so can seek through their Education Division for assistance once the province receives the 2018-2019 Budget soon.
“Being the first for such move by CIP’s Provincial Government, we will now allocate providing scholarship for students studying at SINU,” said the premier.
“Like other provinces, we will be funding our students with a bit of assistance til they continue abroad.”
According to CIP’s Executive Government body, they will not be considering qualified teachers much yet because they are already qualified for salary.
It is understood that many people usually want to do further studies but lack financial support so CIP’s current move is seen as a positive development for the future education of the province and country.
