THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA 'SCHOLARSHIPS.
To encourage

“the youth of this country to proceed to England for the purpose of completing their education either at the University of Oxford or at the University of Cambridge,” the Government of India resolved in February 1886 to institute sis Scholarships tenable in England for a period of three years by Natives of India, two being awarded every year, and to place them at the disposal of the Indian Universities in rotation. It was left “open to each University to consider whether a special examination should be held for the election of the scholars, or whether the election should be made on the results of its ordinary examinations."

At a meeting held in April 1890, the Senate resolved that the award should be made by the Syndicate on the basis of the whole University career of the applicants.

Nomination to the Scholarship will be made by the Syndicate in accordance with the following Regulations, whenever the Scholarship is placed at the disposal of this University :

1. The Government of India Scholarship shall be awarded to Graduates* of the Bombay University, the award being made by the Syndicate on the basis of the whole University career of the applicants as shown in the results of all the University Examinations which they have passed.

2. Candidates for the Government of India Scholarship must be natives of India within the meaning of Section 67 of Statute 33 Vic., cap. 3, and must be Graduates of the University of Bombay under 22 years of age on the last day for sending in applications. I

3. Applications for the scholarship must be forwarded to the Registrar so as to reach him not later than the 3rd Monday in June of the year in which the Scholarship is at the disposal of this University. The Scholarship when available will be announced for competition at least two months before the last day for sending in applications. 4. Competitors should forward with their applications : (a) declarations to show that they have the consent of their families

to proceed to England ; (6) certificates of their good conduct from persons of respectability

and position with whom they may be acquainted; (c) certificates of their knowledge of the English language from one or more of the Professors of the Colleges in which they may have

been educated ; (d) certificates of their physical capacity to undergo the course of life

and study which they will have to follow in England, signed or

countersigned by a Presidency or Civil Surgeon. 5. The Scholar will be required to proceed to England within a reasonable period from the date of his election and to reside there for a period of three years, unless compelled to return sooner by ill health.

* The Government of India do not consider women eligible for the scholarships. + The provision in the section is as follows:-" That for the purpose of this Act the words natives of India’ shall include any person born and domiciled within the dominions of Her Majesty in India, of paronts habitually resident in India, and not established there for tem. porary purposes only; and that it sball be lawful for the Governor General in Council to define and limit from time to time the qualification of natives of India thus expressed."

Candidates are required to furnish along with their applications proofs of their satisfying the conditions laid down in the regulation,

6. He must join either the Oxford or Cambridge University at the opening of the October term, and he must select, once for all, the course of study to be followed by him in England.

7. § Each Scholar will be entitled to receive free passage, and free passage on his return to India, if he should complete the full period of three years' residence or be compelled by sickness to return before the completion of that period.

8. | The Scholarship will entitle the holder to an allowance at the rate of £200 per annum, payable from the date of his arrival in England, and will be tenable for three years.

9. The tenure of the Scholarship will be strictly dependent on good conduct in England, and will be conditional on satisfactory progress being made in study; and each scholar will be required to bind himself by a written engagement to submit to such regulations as may from time to time be framed by His Majesty's Secretary of State for the guidance of the scholars

The following are the rules drawn up by the Secretary of State for the guidance of Indian Scholars while in England :

Rules for Indian Government Scholars in England. 1. Every Scholar shall, on reaching England, at once present himself at the India Office, and report his arrival in writing.

2. Every Scholar shall, without any unnecessary delay, inform the Secretary of State to which University he intends to proceed, and shall at once take steps to enter himself at the College he has selected.

§ “ It has acoordingly been decided that the practice of providing first class accommoda. tion by Railway and Steam-ship for Gilchrist and Government Scholars shall be discontinued. It is, therefore, potified that in future second class accommodation only by Railway in India and on the sea-voyage to London will be allowed to persons selected to hold Gilchrist or Government Scholarships terable in England."--Resolution of the Government of India in the Home Department (Education), No. 10-Edn.—233, 294, dated 23rd July 1895.

| It should be clearly understood by scholars that while the scholarship allowance of £200 a year is sufficient to cover the necessary expenses of College life at Oxford or Cambridge, it is very desirable, if not absolutely necessary, that the scholars should have some small private resources of their own to enable them to meet expenses in the vacation and other general expenses which are scarcely avoidable ; and that it is impossible for them to live with comfort in England without some private resources wherewith to supplement their scholarship allowance.

* The Syndicate were specially empowered by the Senate to nominate the scholars of these ycars on a comparison of the results of the ordinary examinations, pending the decision of the Senato as to the final method of election,

a

3. Every Scholar shall, within four weeks of reaching England, submit for the approval of the Secretary of State a statement showing the general course of study he proposes to follow; and the course approved shall not be changed without the sanction of the Secretary of State.

4. Every Scholar shall, at the end of each term of residence at a University, submit to the Secretary of State a certificate from the proper College orUniversity authority, showing that his residence, conduct, and progress in study have been satisfactory during the term.

5. Every Scholar shall at all times obey such instructions as he may receive from the Secretary of State.

6. Subject to a due compliance with the above conditions, the allowance, at the rate of £200 a year for three years, will be paid quarterly, in advance, by the India Office, commencing from the date of the Scholar's reporting his arrival in England ; but this allowance shall be reduced by the amount of any other sum which may become payable to him out of the revenues of India in respect of residence at a University during the same period or any part of it.

7. Every Scholar will forfeit his Scholarship who, not being disabled by illness or prevented by any other cause which the Secretary of State may consider sufficient, fails to complete a residence of three years in England according to the terms and conditions approved by the Secretary of State under Rule 3, or who is guilty of misconduct or disregard of the orders of the Secretary of State. If a Scholarship be forfeited, the Scholar will lose his claim to a free return passage to India, and will further become liable to refund the cost of his free passage to England.

8. The Scholars will be under the special supervision and charge of the Political Aide-de-Camp to the Secretary of State, through whom the necessary orders will be given, and to whom all reports and other communications respecting them should be sent.
