The attention of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) office has been drawn to a publication on major news platforms suggesting that the PAP has discontinued sponsorship of beneficiaries awarded Formal Education scholarships. It has therefore become imperative to clarify the issue and to put the records straight.
All current PAP scholarship beneficiaries (i.e. onshore and offshore) remain bonafide delegates of the programme and shall continue to benefit from approved privileges associated with their respective scholarship awards. However, due to the current education scholarship debts and outstanding commitments, the PAP has suspended award of fresh scholarships until these obligations are cleared.
