OK Tedi Mine provides Scholarships

MORE than 250 students from Western attending tertiary institutions across the country have qualified for scholarships under the Ok Tedi Development Foundation (OTDF) programme this year.
They were from the Preferred Area Development (PAD) area and Community Mine Continuation Agreement (CMCA) Trust region areas. The PAD covers the Ok Tedi mine-impacted villages and also the Telefomin District of West Sepik while the Trust covers eight regions – Nupmo, Tutuwe, Wai Tri, Middle Fly, Suki-Fly Gogo, Manawete, Dudi, and Kiwaba.

The scholarship programme was funded by the CMCA Trusts and the PAD under Ok Tedi Mining Ltd at a cost of about K2.69 million and includes both new and continuing students.

Since the closing of the 2017 scholarship acceptance list on Feb 10, scholarship agreements have been executed between students and Ok Tedi Development Foundation.
The scholarship programme was administered by OTDF’s Community Education Services. The National/ PNG Today
