ONCE government opens up any scholarship awards for next year to study overseas, only fully vaccinated students will be eligible to apply.
This was highlighted by the Secretary to Prime Minister (SPM) and Chairman of the National Oversight Committee (NOC) Dr Jimmie Rodgers, Sunday.
He was responding to a request asked by a member of the public during the talk-back show.
He said, if the border reopens next year and government comes up with a policy to offer scholarship to study at regional institutions, it might mean, students need to be fully vaccinated.
He said, no jab means, no scholarship under government’s policy.
Dr Rodgers said ministry of education will be working on a policy to address this.
