According to Milton Chivela, who spoke to Lusa on the sidelines of the arrival in the country of a group of 27 Angolan scholarship students, solutions were found to bring the financial component to the students.
"Students in general abroad, except Russia, have their subsidies paid until the month of July. In Russia we have a delay of one month, the scholarships are paid until the month of June, but we managed to do a very big exercise to ensure that the finalists had their bills paid before leaving the training country", he said.
Milton Chivela added that "it has been a tremendous effort on the part of the Executive" to ensure the fulfillment of commitments abroad, with only the current month pending.
The official added that INAGBE currently controls over 1,000 scholarship students abroad, mostly attending training at masters and doctoral level, as a result of the staff training programme, called the Merit Scholarship Programme, a presidential initiative that began in 2019.
"Most of the students we have abroad today are students in this program and some students on cooperation scholarships. Today, the bulk of scholarship students are concentrated in Portugal, but also in Russia, Cuba, the United States of America, Africa and Europe", he said.
Regarding the insertion of students in the job market, Milton Chivela said that an INAGBE database with available students has existed for two years, rejoicing with "very strong engagement with public and private institutions" to make this database known.
"We are pleased to know that several institutions are already turning to INAGBE in search of staff", he stressed.
