The Palau National Scholarship Board hosted a Forum at the Civic Hall on August 03, 2023. This event was to showcase the 29 summer fellowship interns, and allow for them to present on their 8- week internship experiences to an audience consisting of PNSB Board members, supervisors, mentors, leaders from OEK and other members of the community. Also in attendance was the Director of the Bureau of Revenue & Taxation, Mr. Elway Ikeda, who delivered an insightful message to the interns.

The interns were able to practice their public speaking skills, promote themselves to potential employers, and provide exposure on the Palau Fellowship Award program. Thanks to EPFM-Ngerel Belau staff, the Forum was recorded and live streamed through EPFM social media platforms, for many other interested viewers to watch.

The Palau Fellowship Award is overseen by the Palau National Scholarship Board, and available to upcoming college seniors, current college seniors and recent college graduates. Recipients of the award are given airline tickets to and from Palau, plus a biweekly award that is paid throughout an 8- week internship experience. Deadline dates are April 1st for summer internship and November 1st for spring internship.

The PNSB would like to extend their appreciation to all host employers this summer 2023, and to all who contributed to making this Forum a success.
