Namcol scholarship still open

The Namibian College of Open Learning (Namcol) scholarships for secondary education (SE) learners are still open for application.

This is according to Namcol’s southern regional administrator, Conny Samaria.

Samaria told Namibian Sun that the scholarship applications will close on 15 January 2021, giving room for learners currently waiting for their final results to apply.

N$300 000 is annually set aside to fund SE learners each year.

“Customarily, it is the regional councillors that facilitate the application process within each region,” Samaria explained.

This includes handling of the application process, establishment of the ad hoc Evaluation Committee as well as evaluating the merits of the application before forwarding the list of deserving nominees to Namcol.

“We believe that regional councillors are best suited to make such determinations as they know the plight of their communities better,” he said.

The scholarship scheme is only designed to pay for Namcol tuition and excludes any other cost.

It is aimed at assisting needy and vulnerable learners from disadvantaged backgrounds enrolled at Namcol. This marks four years since the decentralisation of the Namcol Secondary Education Scholarship.

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS:

1. Applicants who are employed and earn more than N$3 000 will not be considered. Pay slips must be provided.

2. Applicants whose parents/ legal guardians earn more than N$3 000 per month will not be considered.
