New students: Holy, Lisa, Wina and Sevio

The year 2021 was the second year in which the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation had to select new candidates for the Heliconia Scholarship online, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When recruiting the new students, we first did a document selection, by checking the high school grades from ten candidates. Unfortunately, we only chose seven candidates for the follow-up interviews. Together with the graduates Susanah, Veronica, Sherly, Sefta, Susi, and Vana, cooperation partner Naomi held online interviews with the candidates on March 6th-7th. After interviewing the candidates, Naomi and all graduates had a discussion to select the students who are eligible for the Heliconia Scholarship. We agreed to choose four students: Holy, Lisa, Wina and Sevio!  

Congratulations dear Holy, Lisa, Wina and Sevio!
