I would be grateful if you could provide myself and the public at large - the full criteria for the grant of overseas scholarships. It is only fair that both students and parents be made aware of this well in advance and before they even make the effort to apply.  Publishing this information will also help remove any perception of bias, nepotism or otherwise.

I think it is extremely important that this information be published immediately, especially bearing in mind that hundreds of parents and students are anxiously awaiting the education Council decisions at this very moment.
