Leader of Government Business in the Senator, Clarence Rambharath, says the Ministry of Education is not ruling out the option of legal action against scholarship winners who have not honoured their contractual agreement with the state.
Answering a question on behalf of the Education Minister that was asked in the Senate by Opposition Senator, Wade Mark, today Mr Rambharath revealed how the government plans to deal with this development.
Mr Rambharath said students who are awarded scholarships by the state are required to serve a period of service upon completion of their course of study; this is mandatory.
Mr Rambharath said the period of service is determined by the amount of funds expended on the scholarship.
