We have an increasingly urgent need for people with higher degree qualifications who are able to provide critical leadership and expertise across a range of sectors, particularly if the goals of the National Sustainable Development Plan 2016-2030 are to be met.
The Vanuatu Government Scholarship Postgraduate Study Eligibility Criteria 2018 supports:
- High performing undergraduates who are recommended by their institutions as having the capacity to successfully proceed directly to a postgraduate study program; AND
- Those in the workforce who demonstrate, or have the potential to demonstrate, leadership expertise within their workplace/sectors
The previous NSTB requirement that awardees work for a period of two years before applying for a higher level scholarship is removed.
Applicants are still required to abide by Public Service Commission, Teaching Service Commission, employer and other relevant employment Commission regulations and requirements.
