The Ministry’s Scholarship Scheme was established in 1996. The main objective of the scheme was to assist students from poor and disadvantaged families of the Indian and Minority Communities in accessing Tertiary Education for which their parents lacked in the necessary financial resources.

The scheme allowed for 2 to 3 year cycle of study at prominent well-established Tertiary Institutions. The Scholarship Committee has ten members inclusive of the representative of the Prime Ministers office, the Chief Executive Officer and the Director of Multi-Ethnic Affairs who is the Secretary of the Scholarship Committee.

Currently the mission of the scholarship scheme is to ensure that a disadvantage member of each Indian or Minority Community in Fiji becomes a recipient of the scheme. The target of the Government is to assist 5,000 students during its five year term in Office, which had been achieved.
