FOREWORD

The Gerson-SoIuIu Scholarship program was formally established in 2004 with the initial sponsorship of about 181students from Morobe Province that attended various tertiary institutions in the country.

The Scholarship program has since then expanded both in terms of number of students sponsored, and the amount of money spent.

It also went through a lot of changes in policies and guidelines. For instances, in 2008, the Scholarship was only restricted to Morobeans.

 

There are still pressing challenges that continue to affect the Scholarship program. There is a mounting pressure at the political level to

also assist non-Morobe students whose parents are serving and paying taxes to the province. There is the funding impact at the administrative

 level that the Scholarship program has on other service delivery projects such as; health, education and community development or, on

major development projects in the province. These challenges make the Scholarship issue really complex. It, therefore, calls for involvement

from all stakeholders through a policy guideline which is the 'GersonSolulu Scholarship Policy'

 

The Gerson-Solulu Scholarship Policy aims to address a lot of issues raised by different stakeholders. The Selection Criteria has been introduced,

Application Process is being mapped out, Appeal process is also being highlighted and many other aspects of the Scholarship are being taken into account.

 

Recently we have visited tertiary institutions in Port Moresby and East New Britain and have highlighted some of the issues which are now

 addressed in this policy. Henceforward we will continue to review and update the policy.

 

Let me take this opportunity to acknowledge and commend the former Governor of Morobe Province, Hon. Luther Wenge, MP (1997 — 2012) for

 initiating this scholarship program, and the current Governor of Morobe Province, Hon. Kasiga Kelly Naru, MP (2012/17 — current) for continuing

commitment to improve the program.

 

I also would like to acknowledge the Gerson-SoIuIu Scholarship Committee members for their invaluable contributions especially;

 Mr. Francis Japu (Provincial Planner) for his patience and commitment in providing the technical advice and input into this write up and

also my staff at the Internal Audit officers who worked tirelessly to overcome many difficulties encountered.

 

To the past institutions that we have worked with; Pacific Adventist University, University of Natural Resources, Sonoma Adventist College

and Kokopo Business College, we are grateful for all your comments.

 

 Thank you.

Section I:                      Governance and Management

1.      Introduction

 

The Gerson-SoIuIu Academic Scholarship Program was established in 2004 through a Tutumang Resolution. The Scholarship was created with the intention to assist

Morobe Students who have been selected to attend various tertiary institutions in the country with their tuition fees.

The Scholarship assistance program with its noble intention has been very costly over the years (see Fig.l). The annual budget allocation for the Scholarship has risen to about K5miIIion.

This prompted the Provincial Administrator to instruct the Audit Unit to audit the Scholarship in 2011 and make recommendations by way of a

Scholarship Guideline/Policy to manage the scholarship in the future. This Scholarship Policy is the outcome of the above instruction.

Section 2:        Stakeholder Relationships and Services

2          Introduction

Maintaining a good mutual relationship with all stakeholders is the basis for successful management and administration of the Gerson-Solulu Scholarship.

It has been observed that by having and maintaining an open door policy with stakeholders, unnecessary delays and frustrations can be avoided

 in dealing with students' enrolment at the start of each academic year.


 

This section looks at the funding agreement that the Gerson-Solulu Scholarship would cover and how the scholarship can be managed in dealing with the new instruction.

 

2.2 Funding Agreements (Scholarship Funds)

*       It is the prerogative of the Morobe Provincial Government as to how much funding it would allocate for the Gerson-Solulu Scholarship annually.

This would again depend on the number of students that are approved and confirmed for scholarship.

*       Scholarship funds must be utilized for tuition, messing and boarding (if living away from home). Any other items must be brought to the

Gerson — Solulu Scholarship Committee's attention for consideration and approval.

*       If for any reason the scholarship holder is terminated from school, then any remaining funds must revert back to the Scholarship fund.

The Morobe Provincial Scholarship Office must be promptly notified should this occur.

*       The Scholarship Funds must only be used by the recipient and are not transferable.

*       All Scholarship funds must be paid directly to the School or Organization nominated account. No personal/individual reimbursement of expenses should be allowed.

 The Scholarship Committee makes the final decision determining the appropriate use of funds for Scholarship recipients, and for all matters not covered, otherwise, in this policy.

2.3 Scholarship

*       Morobe Provincial Government as the sponsor expects the Gerson — Solulu Scholarship holder to devote his/her time and effort primarily to academic pursuits.

expectations of an academic environment where there is order and respect for State authority, state and institutional property, respect for individual

 rights and freedom provided under the constitution of Papua New Guinea.

*       The MPG Gerson-Solulu Scholarship for the first time will be split on an "80/20" basis.

*       Eighty (80%)percent of the scholarship recipients' will come from those that have both or one parent being by birth from Morobe Province.
