THE Tertiary Scholarship and Loans Board will soon announce the names of the 600 recipients of the toppers scholarship.

And the scholarships awarded are based on merit, says board chairman Dixon Seeto.

"We have had a video conferencing session with students from Nadi, Lautoka, Labasa and Nasinu where we answered some of the queries that they had about the scholarships," he said.

"We have also explained to the students what we are doing and how we will allocate the scholarships in the preferred areas of study."

Mr Seeto went on to say that some of the students who had applied for the scholarships had only filled in their first choices.

"There are some students who have not filled in the second and third courses that they wish to do.

"We are looking to award the scholarships on merit so that means if one course is filled by students with high marks, the rest of the students can pursue their second choice.

"We have set quotas for each of the courses that are on offer for the students."
