GOOD news for civil servants as the Government of the People's Republic of China has offered scholarships to study for the International Master of Public Administration program.

An Information Ministry statement released yesterday said the scholarship entitlements would include tuition fees, allowances, accommodation, medical insurance, one time roundtrip air ticket and overseas travel insurance.

PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand encouraged eligible civil servants to apply for the program.

Mr Chand said this was one of the priority areas of training for public servants and as such Fiji was deeply appreciative of the offer of assistance by the People's Republic of China in this field.

"Applicants must be a Fiji citizen working in government and he or she must have the endorsement of his/her permanent secretary," Mr Chand said.

In addition, applicants must be under 45 years of age when taking up the award and have an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.

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

The applications close on January 10.
