Fifteen Dominicans are getting set to move to Morocco in the next week or two to further their education.
The scholarship deal has come as Dominica and Morocco seek to broaden relations, after establishing diplomatic relations in June 2010.
Education minister Petter St. Jean said on Thursday, the Morocco scholarship is just another sign of government’s pledge to educate Dominicans.
“We are ensuring that the government itself initiates these programs with foreign governments to send our young people to attain university education,” he said on radio.
The full scholarships will allow individuals to study in fields such as engineering and medicine.
Locals have been given scholarships to Cuba, China, Serbia, Venezuela and United States among other areas, and government expects to make more scholarships available for Dominicans to study overseas.
