What is the PROBETO Scholarship Program?
PROBETO is a USAID-sponsored scholarship program that aims to strengthen the base of skilled, high performing professionals in Timor-Leste to contribute to the country’s economic and social development. PROBETO includes opportunities in education and training with the expectation that the scholar returns home better equipped with formal qualifications as managers, civic and government leaders, subject matter specialists and/or entrepreneurs.
