STATE SCHOLARSHIPS.

RESOLUTION.

Three questions of importance have lately been engaging the attention of the Government of India in connection with the policy regarding State scholarships :

(a) The advisability, in the interest of female education in this country, of assisting and encouraging Indian women to receive a medical training outside India in the United Kingdom or elsewhere;

(b) the insufficiency, in some cases, of the existing rates of Government scholarships; and

(c) the difficulty of securing the admission of State scholars to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

2. The importance of (a) has been emphasised by the recent institution of medical service for women in India. Moreover, the provision of facilities for a course of training in Europe should increase the attractiveness of the study of medicine as well as afford an inducement and an opportunity for the best woman graduates to undertake special courses of training abroad. The Government of India have accordingly invited and obtained the approval of the Secretary of State to the grant, from Imperial revenues, to an Indian woman graduate of one scholarship annually, tenable in the United Kingdom or, with special,sanction, in foreign countries. This scholarship, however, will not

necessarily be confined to the study of medicine but will also be available for training in certain other subjects. The general practice will be that while the scholarship will usually be awarded for the study of medicine, it may also be available for a candidate who desires to undertake some other educational or professional course. Further particulars regarding the scholarship will be found in Appendices I and II. The first scholarship will be awarded in 1916.

3. As regards paragraph 1 () it has been found that in the case of scholars residing at an Oxford or Cambridge College the allowance of £200 a year is sufficient only to cover the necessary expenses of College life and permits little margin for vacation and other expenses. The existing allowance of £150 in the case of Oriental scholars is also considered inadequate. Hence, after consultation with local Government and with the sanction of the Secretary of State the Government of India are pleased to announce that

(a) the value of the two Government of India

University scholarships and of the scholar-
ships granted to a male member of the
domiciled community which are mentioned in
paragraph 6 (a) and (e) of this Resolution
shall be raised from £200 to £250 a year
when held in a College at Oxford or Cam-
bridge,

(6) the value of the language or Oriental scholar-
ships which are mentioned in paragraph 6
(d) of this Resolution shall be raised from
£150 to £200 a year, on the understanding
that the holders of these scholarships will
in future be required to pay their own
University fees; and it will be further
increased to £250 a year on the same under-
standing when the scholarship is held in a
College at Oxford or Cambridge;

(c) before a male scholar leaves India his parent
or guardian must show that he has sent
to the Educational Adviser to the Secretary

[ocr errors]

of State for India a sum of £25 for initial outfit expenses. In the case of a technical scholar the sum of £15 will be sufficient.

4. With regard to paragraph 1 (c), the difficulty of securing admission to Colleges at Oxford and Cambridge is largely due to the late date on which applications for admission on behalf of State scholars are often received. The Secretary of State has recently pointed out that, to ensure success, such applications, accompanied by the requisite testimonials, should reach the Educational Adviser to the Secretary of State for India in March or April each year. The importance of the early and punctual submission of the nomination of scholars was, therefore, brought to the attention of Local Governments and Universities. As will be observed from this Department's letter No. 2428-2432, dated the 24th December, 1913, nomination for University scholarships are required to be submitted in the spring or earlier. The Government of India have been in communication with the Secretary of State regarding this matter and have ascertained that, in cases where delay is inevitable through the necessity of awaiting examination results, arrangements for the admission of scholars to Oxford and Cambridge Colleges may be made, provided that the selection is reported to the Secretary of State by telegram early in June and testimonials forwarded during that month In order that this may be done, the Government of India desire that in the case of all State scholarships application should be received on or before May 15th at the very latest. Nominations submitted after that date cannot be considered, as otherwise the interests of all concerned may be affected adversely. It is hoped that by this means the arrangements made for the admission of State scholars to the English Universities, and especially those of Oxford and Cambridge, will be rendered more

effective.

5. For the sake of convenience the present opportunity is taken to supersede and collate all previous Resolutions and Orders on this subject, and to issue the present Resolution, the Appendices to which deal with State

scholarships of all kinds held abroad and the rules relating to them. It is proposed, instead of issuing supplementary instructions which may be required in future, to embody them in re-issues of the present Appendices. It is thought that this method will be convenient to the public, since enquiries regarding the conditions of these scholarships are frequent.

6. The Government of India have from time to time sanctioned from Imperial revenues the following State scholarships (including that established in this Resolution) tenable abroad by students of this country :

(a) Two scholarships of £200 or £250 [vide paragraph 3 (a) to be awarded annually by the Universities (vide the Government of India, Home Department, Resolution No. 1-45-57, dated the 12th February, 1886).

() Ten technical scholarships of £150 to be awarded annually to statutory natives of India (vide the Government of India, Home Department, Resolution No. 41, dated the 20th January, 1904).

(c) One scholarship of £200 or £250 [vide paragraph 3 (a) to be awarded annually to a male student of the domiciled community (vide the Government of India, Home Department, Resolution No. 221-238, dated the 19th March, 1907).

(d) Two scholarships of £200 or £250 [vide paragraph 3 (b)] to be awarded annually for the study of Oriental languages (vide the Government of India, Home Department, Resolution No. 731-743, dated the 1st September, 1908).

(e) One scholarship of £200 to be awarded annually to a female candidate of the domiciled community (vide the Government of India, Department of Education, Resolution No.12331247, dated the 10th July, 1913).
