THE Indian High Commission has increased its scholarships from 25 to 30.

Speaking during a tour in the North, Indian High Commissioner Vinod Kumar said the Indian Government had announced the increase while receiving Minister for Foreign Affairs Ratu Inoke Kubuabola during his recent tour.

Mr Kumar said last year, 24 Fijian students benefited from the scholarship and travelled to India under the program.

"When Fiji's Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola was in India on a visit in February, the government of India announced that its scholarship sponsorships for Fijian students will be increased from 25 to 30," he said.

"Therefore, this year there will be 30 scholarships and we hope that 30 students from here will utilise these scholarships well. Fourteen students have already been selected and they will be travelling to India depending on the schedule of their various courses in the institutions they have applied to."

Mr Kumar said the scholarship program with Fiji was going well.

"Those interested in applying for the scholarship should have completed Form 6 education which is 12 years of schooling.

"The scholarship is often advertised during the month of December where we advertise for the next year's scholarship offers.

"Students need to keep a look-out in the local media or check with the Indian High Commission web site."
