Timor-Leste: IOB Scholarships (Tax Deductible)
Your donation to this project pays the course fees for students from low-income coffee-growing families, to study at the Institute of Business in Dili.
Between 2012 and 2020, 60 students will have their course fees paid in full for the three years of their Bachelor’s degree. The aim of the project is to support these students to study economics, business or ICT, so they can find employment at the completion of their course. The scholarship for each student is $300 per year, which pays their course fees.
The Institute of Business is a large higher education institution with an average of 2500 students a year studying diploma and bachelor courses in economics, business and ICT. 80% of IOB graduates have found employment in their area of study.
Donors can choose to sponsor a student for a whole year, or make a smaller donation which Tradewinds will put towards the full $300.
