Scholarship committee member Inoke Qarau said since 2013, Tailevu USA has awarded 14 scholarships that have produced two graduates - one Bachelor in Education in Agricultural Science and Bachelor in Law. 

"One student is on her last semester and will be graduating soon," Mr Qarau said.

"Applicants are also required to consider providing expert opinion in their villages, district and the Yasana o Tailevu when needed," he said.

Tailevu USA Inc was established in 2012 by the men and women of Tailevu in the US to support deserving students with financial limitations achieve their academic dreams.

Interested students should show their interest in applying online at which closes on January 12, 2018.
