HC Deb 25 February 1869 vol 194 c310

said, he would beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India, What arrangements have been made with reference to the Scholarships recently established by the Government of India for Natives of that country desirous of prosecuting their studies in England; and, whether there are any Papers on the subject which he can lay upon the Table?


, in reply, said, the subject to which the Question referred was a deeply interesting one, and was still under consideration, and as soon as the Papers were in a complete form he should be happy to lay them upon the table. The House would probably be interested to know that the first competitive Scholarship conferred by the Government of India had been gained by a young native of Assam, and the Government had just been informed by the Government of Bengal that he was expected to arrive in England in a few days.
