Part To'abaita youth soccer rep handed USP All rounder sports scholarship for 2007
The names were announced by the coordinator of the All-Rounder Scholarship programme Margaret Eastgate.
The new Fijian recipients of this prestigious award include the national Netball defender, Lusiani Robanakadavu; holder of national Swimming record Lorraine Patterson; national track runner Merelaisa Dawaqa and national Basketball representative, Sera Colata.
It is reported that Solomon Islands soccer star Franklyn Forau declined the offer of the scholarship for personal reasons. However, it is understood Mr Forau is already at USP on a Solomon Islands Government Scholarship. Mr Forau is part Tikopia and Malathawa Village in North Malaita.
The scholarships programme was first introduced last year and was the brainchild of former Vice Chancellor Professor Anthony Tarr.
