MP Ghate urged students to fill in data forms so the DDA screens applications so appropriate funding will be made available. Payment to some higher learning institutions has started.
University of Papua New Guinea was presented K89, 000 this week. University of Goroka was also paid K266, 000.
Other institutions like Unitech, Pacific Adventist University and other higher learning institutions will be processed.
On an equal agenda, the Daulo MP emphasized that student must complete the data sheet for the committee to vet.
