Haiti - Benin : 110 Haitian scholars will make their studies in Benin
After Senegal, and its 163 scholars, it was the turn of Benin to open the doors of its universities to 110 young Haitians. Benin had proposed last September to welcome scholarship students in its universities. However, this agreement took time to materialize because of some antecedents in cases of scholarships between the two countries.

"Arriving at the ministry in 2008, we discovered that about twenty young scholars from the Ministry of Sports in Benin were in a difficult situation and fifteen others were left to themselves without being able to study. We could not claimed anything to the state of Benin because no agreement bound us on the conditions for the granting of scholarships" has informed the Minister of Sports, Evans Lescouflair. "We required that the government of Benin is committed in an agreement between the State of Benin and the Haitian state which specifies the conditions under which will be received, trained, fed and housed Haitian nationals through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before accepting these scholarships."

Benin has officially responded positively to these demands and signing an agreement with the Haitian State to receive, accommodate, and provide to 110 young Haitians the framework for their higher education:

  • Administrative Sciences ( Marketing and Organisation Management, Planning, Transport Management and Logistics)
  • Economic and Financial Sciences (Economics and International Finance, Economic and Political Analysis)
  • Biological and Environmental Sciences (17 sectors)
  • Human and Social Sciences (Journalism, Economics and Rural Extension)
  • Science and Technology (Science and Information Technology, computer and statistical management, computer engineering and telecommunications).

The inscriptions for the scholarships of Benin were held from December 16 to 21, 2010 the entrance exam on December 23. The 110 youth who will be selected should leave Haiti between January 3 and 6, 2011 to Benin to begin their university studies.
