STRONG partnership between the governments of Fiji and China has led to increased educational opportunities for civil servants in Fiji.

The Chinese government has offered four masters scholarship awards for all civil servants, for the 2013-2014 academic year.

The scholarship offers programs for International Master of Education in fields of educational leadership and policy, master of public administration in Chinese governance for developing countries, Master's Program in international relations and international master of international communication, the Public Service Commission confirmed on Friday last week.

Acting permanent secretary PSC Iliesa Lutu said all eligible applicants should seriously consider applying.

"This is an opportunity to undertake further studies and the government of Fiji is grateful for support shown by the People's Republic of China to such a positive initiative," Mr Lutu said.

According to the PSC, the scholarship covers tuition fees for the period between September 2013 and August 2014.

Those interested should source further details from the PSC website.
