Private students at the University of the South Pacific wishing to continue their studies in Semester 2 can take advantage of the USP Bursary Scheme offered by the University to ease their financial burden.

The Bursary Scheme provides financial assistance to approximately 250 to 300 undergraduate or postgraduate level students across all its member countries and is a tuition fee assistance programme for privately funded students facing financial difficulties.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education Professor Jito Vanualailai says with the current challenging economic environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, USP is committed to easing the complexity of navigating tertiary tuition fees for its students through the USP Bursary Scheme.

He says this Scheme would greatly assist students in pursuing their studies as it enables many financially disadvantaged students to pay their tuition fees and continue their studies at USP.

Professor Vanualailai says USP is committed to ensuring students are not hampered by their financial circumstances.

All registered and continuing students are eligible for bursary assistance, excluding students supported by other sponsorship or scholarship schemes.

The applicants need a GPA of 2.5 or above in the most recent term and have a combined family income of not more than $25,000 a year to be eligible for consideration under the Scheme. Classes for semester two will begin on 15th August 2022.
