US South Pacific Scholarship 2023 | Qualification Models
Bachelor’s Scholarship: Applicants must have finished secondary school by the cutoff time for submitting a university application for admission to their undergraduate program. In some countries, this means having finished “Structure 6.” In different countries, this might mean having finished “Grade 12.” Individuals who have finished some undergraduate-level courses yet have not gotten what could be compared to a U.S. four-year bachelor’s certificate are also qualified and strongly urged to apply.
Master’s Scholarship: Applicants must have finished basically a three-year baccalaureate program. Those with a three-year Bachelor’s certification might apply for a crossing-over program of as long as one year, which upon fulfillment allows for application to a master’s certificate program. Master’s programs may not need a spanning part, contingent upon earlier study and scholarly execution during the first year.
Courses that meet the criteria include those in agriculture, business, journalism, education, ecological studies, orientation studies, NGO boards, political theory, policy implementation, public health, STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), and other related fields.
Candidates from the accompanying countries—Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu—who meet specified selection criteria qualify for the program.
