The Kokopo District Administration launched it’s 2021 Tertiary Tuition Fee Subsidy program on Tuesday 19th January 2021.
The Kokopo City Authority Board last week made the decision from a submission by the Chairman of KCAB and Kokopo MP Hon. Emil Tammur to roll out the program again this year.
Mr Tammur told the KCAB board during its first meeting last Wednesday that it was important to roll out the program again in 2021, in order to assist the students during these difficult economic times. Kokopo District has been assisting it’s Tertiary students for the past four years, while most other districts in the province have shelved their programs.
The board approved an initial K700,000 for the program similar to last year which catered for over 600 students. The registration period will run for a month and the closing date for all applications is Friday, February 19, 2021.
Students attending Tertiary institutions are encouraged to go to Kokopo District Administration at Bitapaka to enquire and pick up an application form.
Mr Tammur’s CEO Albert Buanga assure parents that all tuition fee assistance will be paid out early, unlike last year where all payments were delayed by the COVID 19.
