The Fiji Government Scholarship Scheme was established in 1978 as a “Cost - Sharing Scholarship Scheme”, through the recommendation of the Kapadia Report. As a result, a separate unit in the Public Service Commission was established with the sole responsibility of administering all scholarship awards, to all local tertiary institutions as well as liaising with overseas donor countries on their scholarship awards.
For this purpose, a Scholarship Selection Committee was established with the responsibility of identifying critical manpower needs for which scholarships are to be awarded and to be responsible for all Fiji Government scholarships administration.
The PSC Scholarship Unit is currently located at Canavon Street, Suva (Old Fijian Affairs Board & Eastern / Central Regional Office). That is beside and Fiji Broadcasting Cooperation Limited (FBCL) building or at the back of Native Land Trust Board (NLTB) Head Quarters.
