Fiji’s Tertiary Scholarships and Loans Service (TSLS) is urging Year 13 students to complete their online applications for scholarships.
Processing of applications has started, with 2579 complete for decision, and 3999 applications are in progress of completion or incomplete.
The plea for students to move quickly on their application the TSLS says is essential because certain scholarships for various programmes have quotas “and will be filled from the highest mark to the last descent for those students who have successfully completed.”
A large number of applications remain incomplete, as applicants are yet to select their choice of programme, upload final offer letter from preferred choice of tertiary education provider and upload essentially required documents such as birth certificate, bank details and combined parental income where applicable.
Eligibility criteria and application guides are available on TSLS platforms. Receiving an offer letter doesn’t guarantee automatic scholarships; applicants must apply under eligible schemes.
In total, 7935 scholarship application accounts are active for the 2024 academic year.
Continuing students (9148) are not required to reapply. TSLS operates on Saturdays during this peak period.
The closing date is 2 February 2024.
