Sixty-four students from the villages of Puge, Butuo, Jinyang, Xide, Luding and Muli received bursaries for the first semester of the school year 2013 to 2014. This is an increase of 25 students in our bursaries scheme since last term. The scheme covered 4 university students who received RMB2000 per semester; 9 senior high students who received RMB1000 per semester; 30 junior high students who received RMB500 per semester and 21 primary students who received RMB260 per semester. The aim of the bursaries scheme is to help students from families that are unable to support their children’s education. The students are chosen by committees in each community. The bursaries are given to students with an outstanding academic performance.
