281 private students studying at USP have received financial assistance under the USP Student Bursary Scheme.
The Bursary Scheme is a tuition fee assistance scheme available to USP’s private students facing financial hardships. Successful recipients of the Scheme had 50% of their tuition fees paid for in either Semester 1 or Trimester 1, this year.
Recipient, Inise Taweketini says as the sole breadwinner for her family, the assistance provided by the University has lessened her financial burden and now she is able to concentrate on completing her programme at USP.
Tawaketini hopes to complete her post-graduate Diploma in Linguistics this year and to fulfil her dream of becoming a sign language trainer.
USP’s Acting-Vice-Chancellor, Dr Giulio Masasso Tu’ikolongahau Pāunga says the university is committed to supporting students from all backgrounds to access high-quality education and not be limited by their financial status.
All registered and continuing students are eligible for the bursary assistance, excluding students supported by sponsors or scholarship schemes.
The applicants will need to have a GPA of 2.5 or better in the most recent semester/trimester and have a combined family income of not more than $25,000 a year to be eligible for consideration under the bursary scheme.
The second call of Bursary Assistance Application will be made in July. Naveel
