Master It!s scheme extended

An extension of the Master It!s scheme was launched today with an additional investment of €800,000.

Education Minister Evarist Bartolo and the Parliamentary Secretary for EU Funds Ian Borg said that during the first call, a record €2.7 million was invested in scholarships at master’s level.

A record number of applications and recipients resulted from the government taking a more inclusive approach.

Mr Bartolo said that having wider parameters allowed for people to return to their studies and improve their education.

He said that he was pleased to see a good mix of ages being awarded a Master It! scholarship in the first call. He also noted that a diverse mix of studies had been taken up, from ICT to the environment and life sciences.

Dr Borg said the decision to extend this EU funded initiative by an additional €800,000 followed the record take up and this brought the total amount invested to €3.5 million.

He said that this showed the Government’s commitment to make the best use of EU Funds, allocating funds to crucial sectors of the economy such as education.
