The PNSB is happy to welcome 8 successful interns back home to start their employment with Palau National Government, NGOs and private agencies. These interns have all completed their college degrees in various colleges and universities abroad. As a result, they have  duly complied with their promise to receive PNSB financial assistance and return home to begin their chosen careers in helping with Palau’s development as a young nation.

Despite the Covid-19 Pandemic, these 8 interns endured long and difficult travel requirements to reach home in time for their summer internship beginning in July – August 2020. Many of them experienced loneliness and uncertainties as they made their way home. However, they are all happy now to be home with their families. Below are some information about these hard-working and resilient individual students who have completed their college degrees and now part of Palau’s national capacity building:
