Tahtiyana Taukei and Timaima Tuivakano will be able to pursue their studies in the Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery programme through scholarships provided by the Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara Education Trust Fund.

Taukei says this scholarship has strengthened her belief that nothing is impossible with God and it will help her achieve her academic and personal goals.

Tuivakano says she is grateful for this initiative as it has always been her dream to be a doctor, and she will do her best to achieve her dream and give back to her province.
