Opportunity to study

Thursday, June 12, 2014

FEMALES around the country who wish to pursue an education in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions now have a chance to make that dream a reality.

Westpac yesterday launched the 2014 Women's Education Grant at Nadi's Sangam SKM College after an official event in Suva earlier this week.

"Westpac is spending more than $10,000 on this program," Westpac's manager sustainability Eseta Nadakuitavuki said.

"Nine grants will be awarded — three each for primary, secondary and tertiary students — all of which will be awarded to females," she said.

She said this grant was aimed at empowering women to get educated.

"We want all young girls to apply for this grant and realise their dreams.

"Those women who got married at a young age or women who dropped out of school due to financial constraints are all encouraged to apply.

"Applications have to be submitted within the next five weeks as the closing date is July 11."

Mrs Nadakuitavuki said they had invited school principals from around Nadi and surrounding areas to join Westpac managers from the Sigatoka to Rakiraki branches for familiarisation.

"Schools will now know how to go about processing the applications."

She said interested people could check Westpac's website www.westpac.com.fj or the company Facebook page titled Westpac Pacific or call 132032 for more information.
