TOTAL gives 90 Papua New Guinea students scholarships

NINETY students from Papua New Guinea's Don Bosco Technical School (DBTS) in Port Moresby were offered scholarships this year by Total Energies Exploration and Production (TEP PNG), an official says.

TEP PNG managing director Jean-Marc Noiray said this during a visit to donate ICT equipment to the school on Aug 11.

“(DBTS) entered into a memorandum of understanding with (TEP PNG) as operator of the Papua LNG Project to receive assistance through a scholarship programme earlier in June,” he said.

Noiray said the programme was rolled out last month, with scholarships available to students studying technical trades at DBTS and 90 students were offered the opportunity, plus another 90 students next year.

“Priority for scholarship spots will be given to students from Gulf and then extended to other provinces in an effort to work towards optimising opportunities for young Papua New Guineans, who may be eligible to roles during the construction and production phase of the project,” he said.

“We support without any mutual commitment of employment and we recommend you to our future contractors as potential recruits for their operations,” he said.

Noiray advised the students that for recommendation of potential candidates, they participate in selection process of the students, follow up on academic results, personal behaviour and performance to pick the candidates.

“I do believe that every human being is born with the same amount of potential and some are lucky enough to develop it while others are not,” he said.
