ITI extends scholarship offer to more schools

Lae News, Normal

THE International Training Institute in Lae is awarding K30,000 worth of scholarships to 15 more high schools in Morobe under its Grade 10 scholarship scheme next year.
The high schools include Salamaua, Siassi, Dregerhafen, Kabwum, Sialum, Menyamya, Wasu, Busu, Nawaeb, Lae Christian Academy, Bayune, Pindiu, Markham Valley, and Grace Memorial.
Current schools under the scheme for the past five years include Lae, Bugandi and Bumayong secondary schools, and Malahang Technical High School.
ITI marketing manager Danny Smith said the scholarship scheme was a form of incentive to assist those who cannot afford to continue or those who were not eligible to continue in the normal system.
The scholarship is provided for a six-month certificate training on any preferred course by
the candidate.
Mr Smith said the scholarship would be provided to only one student from each of the high schools.
“The potential student is selected by the school itself,” he said.
