Company Tuition is for families that are (a) affiliated with multinational businesses or agencies, (b) affiliated with diplomatic organizations, (c) who are not permanent residents of Suriname or (d) families whose educational benefits are covered fully by their sponsoring entity as part of an expatriate benefit package.
