The Scholarship Program

After a long process in liaison with schools and institutions in Timor Leste the Geelong Viqueque Friendship Schools Group has established a range of scholarships for secondary students to assist with tertiary studies, technical education (nonexistent in Viqueque schools) and the final years of secondary education.

Four students from the Catholic Institute for the Formation of Teachers in Baucau and four students from Fatumaca Technical College have been the first recipients. It is expected that $7000 will be set aside annually for the Scholarship Program. If you are interested in contributing to the cost of individual scholarship holders please email pj.cannon@bigpond.com and you find additional information in our newsletter Mantan Kontaktu No 20.
