POST-WAR STUDY

CAMBRIDGE BURSARIES

TEN FOR NEW ZEAIvANDERS

In consequence of uncertainty regarding bursaries at King's College, Cambridge, for which they had received several inquiries, the Services Commercial Contact Centre, Auckland, recently communicated with the Minister of Defence, Mr. Jones.

In his reply the Minister stated that the authorities of the college had made available ten bursaries, each of £100 per annum and tenable for two years, to personnel of the New Zealand forces. Of these ten bursaries, not more than five were available in any one academic year. The bursaries had at first been available only to disabled servicemen, but their scope had now been extended to include personnel not yet discharged who had served in any theatre of war, although they might have returned to Ne.. Zea' land. In the event of a bursary being awarded to a serviceman now in New Zealand, the War Cabinet had approved of the payment of the cost of his passage to the United Kingdom.

"The only educational qualification laid down by the college authorities is that the applicant must have passed matriculation. Other requisites of bursars are character, the desire to study and the willingness to learn. The courses available cover a wide field, including science, mechanics, mathematics, classics, history, law, economics, and modern languages (particularly English)," said the Minister. "Entry to the college may be made during the months of January, April, June, July, or October, the bursar being required to live in. Ordinary pay and allowances are drawn during the term of the bursary, and authority has been given for the remission of sufficient private funds to meet reasonable expenses," he added. Commenting on the Ministers reply, Mr. C. J. Aitken, chief executive officer of the Services Contact Centre, said the decision to grant ordinary pay and allowances to the bursar, and to provide for the remission of sufficient private funds to meet reasonable expenses would extend the scope of the bursaries.
