MP Mogerema Sigo Wei said K1.8 million has been allocated by the Karamui-Nomane District Development Authority for this purpose in 2017. This will cover a total of 1400 students studying in various institutions both in PNG and abroad.
Sigo Wei said since 2013, Karamui-Nomane DDA had so far spent K5 million for more than 3000 students.
He said assistance for students in other universities and learning institutions would be made in the coming weeks.
The institutions are both private and government owned.
