The Government of Vanuatu through the Ministry of Education & Training launches its first ever scholarships website and online application process. This process is the first phase of a comprehensive Scholarship Management Information System (SMIS) which is being developed by CNS to assist in the effective selection and management of all awardees, and facilitate a more coordinated approach to the integration of graduates within the workforce.
The bilingual website and online application process is a milestone development to help ensure that the Vanuatu Government Scholarships are transparent, accountable and responsive. This system will assist the TSCU and National Scholarships and Training Board to more effectively assess and select scholarship recipients in order to meet the national workforce priority needs of Vanuatu.
