The Department of Public Service, Ministry of the Presidency hereby informs applicants for scholarships, to the University of Guyana and Guyana School of Agriculture, that it is working diligently to conclude the processing of all applications received. The inability to assess, shortlist and award the said scholarships prior to the commencement of the new semester lies in the fact that the number of applications received far exceeds that expected and must therefore be thoroughly vetted to ensure that the awards are made fairly. The department urges patience at this time and assures that announcements of awards will be made in the shortest possible time.
