The Australian Government has awarded scholarships to three Zambian female students to pursue their Masters in Geo Science, Environmental Health, and Public Policy.

The scholarships were offered through the Australian High Commissioner in South Africa to Beauty Nalwendo, Masuzyo Phiri, and Pezo Kapita and the awardees will pursue their studies at the Monash University of Australia.

Australia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Tegan Brink urged those awarded with scholarships to work hard as they embark on their studies.

Ms. Brink advised the trio to take advantage of the opportunity given to them to further their studies.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Mazuba Monze said she is excited that Zambians have been given an opportunity to further their studies and thanked the Australian Government for the gesture.

Ms. Monze said the opportunity given to the three Zambian students is a demonstration of goodwill and a testimony of the sound bilateral relationship between the two countries.

She challenged the three students to represent Zambia well by upholding the values and principles of the nation.

This is contained in a statement issued to RCV News in Lusaka today by First Secretary Press and Public Relations at the Zambian High Commission in South Africa Tamara Nyirenda.
