“As long as you can prove that your child attended primary, high and secondary schools in Morobe then you will benefit from that K20 million.”

Governor Wenge clarified that the scholarship will cover non-Morobeans as well, especially those who have met the requirements, as outsiders who live and work in Lae also pay taxes to the government.

He stressed that the government will cover the tuition fees of all students in Morobe, from elementary up to tertiary.

As long as tertiary students are awarded the Gerson-Solulu Scholarship, all fees will be met.
