To the Honourable, the President and Members of the Senate in the Parliament assembled.

The Petition of the undersigned demand the Australian Government recognise that taxing scholarships will:

(a) jeopardise links between universities and industry;

(b) increase the costs of scholarships resulting in few scholarships or scholarships of less value; and

(c) represents another attack on the education sector; and

calls on the Government to amend Income Assessment Act 1936 to make clear scholarships are not taxable.
