The Office of the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Embassy of Brazil in the Republic of Suriname are taking the lead in organizing the International Scholarship Fair on Friday, 13 April 2018.

This platform gives resident and non-resident Embassies & International Organizations the opportunity to give exposure to scholarship programs they offer to Surinamese nationals as part of their bilateral or multilateral cooperation agreements to support the country’s sustainable development portfolio.

Education is an important tool to develop a nation. Giving Surinamese nationals the opportunity to pursue an education in your country and return with that specialized training to Suriname will not only contribute towards their personal development and broaden their networks, but also increase the knowledge base of the country.

The International Scholarship Fair is intended primarily for university students seeking to pursue studies abroad for specialization at the Master’s or Doctoral Level (Ph.D.). Some scholarships are available for those starting the bachelor’s abroad.

Many Embassies accredited to Suriname took part in the International Scholarship Fair last year which attracted almost 2000 students.

This is an opportunity for students interested in learning about scholarship opportunities to visit booths and also attend special talks on different countries’ educational opportunities in breakout sessions. These break-out sessions will be short panels of about 45 minutes to provide more in-depth explanations of a country’s scholarship program. Pre-registration for these break-out sessions is recommended online.
