OfP Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) is a technical and vocational education institute that offers skills training to high school graduates (Grade 10). Since opening in 2022, there are now about forty students enrolled in Computer Science and Civil Engineering programs. With tuition fees of about $25 CAD per month, the programs are affordable for most students, but even at this low cost, some students need to defer payment. Others receive scholarships, including graduates of OFP’s Bluebell School who get completely free tuition. Donor support will be important for several more years until start-up costs are absorbed and enrollment increases. In the photos, OIST students are writing examinations as required by the national regulator.
