Senior Secondary Scholarships
PVIS is committed to proactively supporting education opportunities for high performing Ni-Vanuatu students who want to study at PVIS.
The Senior Secondary Scholarship Program is a new initiative targeted to Ni-Vanuatu Year 11 students currently studying at local Vanuatu schools.
It is totally funded by generous and strategic corporate sponsorship, and covers 100% tuition costs for Year 10, Year 11 and 12 for scholarship winners.
Senior Secondary Scholarships
Through strategic partnerships with local businesses and organisations, PVIS is very pleased to be providing full tuition scholarships to selected high-performing Year 9 Ni-Vanuatu students (for commencement at Year 10 the following year). By commencing at Year 10, these scholarship students are set up to thrive in Year 11 and 12.
PVIS gratefully recognises the significant financial contribution our Senior Secondary Scholarship corporate sponsors are generously making to ensure selected scholarship students are “set up for success”.
Senior Secondary Scholarships provide generous full tuition scholarship packages that include educational resources (such as textbooks, stationery and computer laptops) and uniforms and footwear.
PVIS is always seeking partners to sponsor Senior Secondary Scholarships.
Annually in October, interested Year 9 (for enrolment in Year 10 the following year) Ni-Vanuatu students from Vanuatu High Schools will be invited to apply for these scholarships.
Our current Senior Secondary Scholarships are the result of the very generous support of the ANZ Bank and the Open Access College, TitanFX and the Kotara Community of Schools
The Kotara Community of Schools is a group of 8 schools, 7 Primary and 1 High school situated in the heart of Newcastle NSW Australia. The schools have combined to provide an opportunity for a Ni-Vanuatu student to achieve their SACE and potentially pursue higher education beyond high school.
PVIS is very grateful for the commitment our partners have made to the School’s new strategic education initiative.
This new program allows local Ni-Vanuatu students to access quality senior secondary education, and demonstrates our partners’ commitment to contributing to providing education opportunities in Vanuatu.
We are also very excited about the opportunities our 2018 winners will enjoy with their sponsors involvement in their education.
TitanFX, ANZ Bank, Kotara Community of Schools and Open Access College are committed to ensuring their students are supported to succeed in their studies with PVIS, and want to be involved in their student’s futures. True leadership!
