The Government announced last week the Aspire Scholarship scheme, designed by National and ACT in 2009, would be discontinued. No student already attending a school with an Aspire Scholarship is affected, including those who took up their place in Term 1 this year. The decision means no further applications will be sought.
The document considered by Cabinet to take its decisions on this package has been proactively released: Cabinet paper - Discontinuation of the Aspire Scholarships
Pictured with Dr Lance O'Sullivan are two scholarship recipients, Malachi Donnelly and Laken Tua.
