More than 100 SIG tertiary students face being terminated in 2007

More than 100 Solomon Islands Government scholarship recipients face being terminated for failing to complete their programmes of study within the expected time frame.

The National Training Unit of the Ministry of Education, which deals with scholarships had last year issued a list of students whose scholarships are on the line. The students have been informed via e-mail that they have completed their three years and should be graduating. But most of the students still need an extra semester or two to fully complete their studies.

However, the National Training Unit had also notified the students concerned to lodge formal applications to extend their scholarships, as well as to state their reasons why they need an extra semester.

It is understood most of the government sponsored students who are in that list are those studying at the Fiji-based University of the South Pacific's Laucala Campus in Suva.

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation has reported that the scholarship board (National Training Council) will meet next Monday to assess student applications.
