  Nationwide

Covid has impacted the pacific countries as it has the rest of the world. 150,000 Fijians have lost their jobs as a result of the collapse of Tourism.

In 2020 Taveuni Rotary sponsored 160 children from Year 9 to Year 13. Education is free, therefore no school fees. Parents have to provide a uniform incl. shoes, school bag, exercise books, a calculator and stationery. Each scholarship provides FJ $250. The payment is made in the form of vouchers which are redeemable at 3 stores on Taveuni in exchange for the items. Each scholar is endorsed by their school and interviewed with a parent by a panel of Rotary members. The club aim to provide a scholarship in some cases for up to 5 years. Rotary club members attend the annual end of year prize giving. Many children who receive a Rotary scholarship are Dux of their school. They have to date 400 scholarship requests for 2021.

The students are selected, with support of the school principal and primary school head teacher. In past years, every student receiving a scholarship was in the top 10% in their class. Ten went on to receive a fully funded scholarship at University of South Pacific, whilst others received partly funded USP scholarships. The students commitment endorses the value of the scholarships.
