THE Kingdom of Morocco is offering 10 scholarships to Fijians to pursue graduate studies.

Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said PSC would follow the due process of advertising, short listing and interviews to select the most meritorious candidates.

Mr Chand said PSC was grateful to the government of the Kingdom of Morocco for providing the additional 10 scholarships.

He said this would allow Fiji to have people trained in areas that would contribute towards meeting the human resource needs of both its private and public sector.

The new students will undertake French language studies before they leave and will have to complete a year of French language study at the Faculty of Educational Sciences in Rabat before beginning their studies.

Programs being offered include Science, Medicine, Engineering, Vocational Training, Arts, and Administration to name a few.

Mr Chand said PSC met partial costs for students who were selected to study and covered return airfares.

He said in addition to that an annual supplementary allowance in addition to tuition, a monthly allowance and accommodation provided by the Moroccan government.

Successful applicants are expected to begin their studies in September and the names of the successful candidates would be finalised in consultation with the Moroccan International Co-operation Agency.

There are eight students from Fiji currently studying in Morocco.
