IP&E Palau continues to be a strong supporter of higher education for Palauans shown by their consistent scholarship donations for the past 21 years. Delegate and IP&E Palau Area Manager Frank Kyota is committed to advocating for the IP&E Scholarship to continue. Delegate Kyota presented this school year’s scholarship donation of $5,000.00 to the Palau National Scholarship Board.
This money is available to students majoring in specific fields of study preferred by IP&E Palau Inc.: Biological Science – Pre-med or Medicine or Marine Biology; Physical Science – Chemistry (Teaching); Social Science – Economics, Pre-Law/Law; Math – Teaching. A student must also study at a college or university outside of Palau. IP&E also sponsors a scholarship for Palau Community College that is administered through PCC. Palau National Scholarship Board awarded the school year 2016-2017 IP&E Scholarship award of $1,250 each to the following four students based on their grades, field of study and class level: BINTORIO, Glover; MASON, Catherine A., ROBERTO, Rilang, WILLIS, Keisha V.
