FIJI civil servants are being offered two masters scholarships by the Republic of Korea government.

A government statement said the successful applicants would study Development Co-operation Policy at Seoul National University, with the duration of study being a year beginning August 30.

PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said "this is a wonderful opportunity for our public servants, given our emphasis on building improved capacities for the development of a professional public service"

"We will definitely utilise this opportunity and are deeply appreciative of the offer of assistance by the Government of the Republic of Korea in this instance," he said.

The scholarship will cover tuition fees, living allowance, meals, textbooks and overseas travel insurance, study visits and field trips and return airfares.

Applicants must be Fiji citizens, under 35 years of age and must be civil servants specifically recommended by the respective Permanent Secretary.

Those applying must submit their applications to the PSC Overseas Training Unit no later than March 4.

More application details can be obtained from the PSC website www.psc.gov.fj.
