THE Government has awarded 131 scholarships at the graduate and doctoral levels for the 2012-2013 academic year.
In a release on Friday, the Ministry of Public Administration said a Cabinet-appointed Scholarship Selection Committee chose the awardees based on their proposed programme of study, which had to be tied in to an identified development need of the country.
"The award of these scholarships is one aspect of Government's strategy to provide higher educational opportunities in areas that are aligned to the development needs of the country," the statement said.
The release added that a full list of the names of the people who were awarded scholarships could be found at www.scholarships.gov.tt.
