Senator GORTON - The number of secondary school two-year scholarships which have been awarded to South Australia is 951. Arrangements have been made for those scholarships to be awarded at the end of this school year to those students who have two more years in which to complete their secondary school education. The scholarships will be tenable in 1965 and 1966. For students in South Australia and in other States who have only one more year in which to complete their secondary education, special one-year scholarships have been established. These also will be awarded at the end of this year and will be tenable in 1965, the last year. In total 1,902 secondary school scholarships will be awarded following examinations to be conducted by the South Australian Department of Education. Approximately 240 technical scholarships will be awarded in South Australia - some of them possibly part-time scholarships.

The value of the secondary school scholarships is £100 as a living allowance and up to £100 annually for books and any school fees that may be required. Both these payments are means test free. The value of technical school full time scholarships is the same as that of the secondary school scholarships - that is, a means test free £100 living allowance and up to £100 for books and fees.


Senator Laught - On top of that there are the tertiary scholarships.


Senator GORTON - They are quite different. They are additional.
