HC Deb 06 July 1961 vol 643 c139W
46. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what are the results of his inquiries into offers of United States scholarships to Northern Rhodesian students; on what conditions these offers are based; and if he will take steps to ensure that they are taken up.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Under the African Scholarship Programme of American Universities scholarships have been awarded recently to ten Northern Rhodesians, including eight Africans. These awards covered all costs except those of passages to and from the United States, which are being met from local sources.
