Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 1. 1967.

Paid less Pay less

Paid less Pay less

Wellington: Prom this year all students starting a university course of studentships will be allowed to receive university bursary, bursary supplement or Scholarship payments as well as their Division U salaries, the Minister of Education (the Hon. A. E. Kinsella) has said.

On a par

The Minister said this arrangement would put student teachers on a par with students receiving assistance from other Government departments during their university courses and with students getting a boarding allowance from their fees and allowances bursaries.

He pointed out that this boarding allowance was more generous than that attached to studentships.


Besides this advantage, he said, holders of studentships would be eligible for special supplementary bursaries if they gained A or B passes in the bursary exam instituted last year. They would also be able to win a University Entrance Scholarship and still retain their studentships.

To offset this increase in allowances studentship-holders would be paid less, but in return would have less to pay the Government back if they relinquished their studentships.
