By Alfred Maesulia

Six places for full-time undergraduate study will be available this year under the sponsorship of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

A statement from the ROC Embassy in Honiara said all applications for the six places must go through the National Training Unit (NTU) of the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development for initial selection.

According to the statement final endorsement of the selected applicants would be made by the ROC Taiwan Embassy.

Since it is expected that a good number of applications will be received from Solomon Islands students, criteria used for the selection will be competitive.

The following qualifications will be considered:

1. Solomon Islands citizen with Form Seven Certificate and students must be less than 25 years old in 2007.
2. Student must achieve good academic record including good moral standard.
3. A student must not hold ROC Taiwanese passport or certificate of Taiwanese expatriate status.
4. Applicant must not be a recipient of other ROC Taiwanese government scholarship.
5. No status of being an exchange student who are admitted in Taiwan or having records of scholarship being cancelled before.

The statement said that the benefit of the scholarship covers a maximum of 5 years of study including first year of required Mandarin study and four years of bachelor study.

Successful applicants will also receive substantive monthly allowance and return economy airfares for the most direct flight from Solomon Islands to Taiwan.

Interested applicants should now enquire at the National Training Unit where official application forms are available.

Application for the 2007 scholarship opens from February 1 to March 31 this year.
