Dr Lance O'Sullivan advocates for Aspire Scholarships

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.
