To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what steps he is taking to assess the use of the National Scholarship Programme by institutions in 2012-13.
The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has commissioned CFE Research and Consultancy, an independent research and consultancy body, to undertake an evaluation of the National Scholarship Programme.
The first phase of the project, running until early next year, will look at the set up of the programme by institutions, and the report will be published next spring. The second phase, which will include consideration of the first year of the programme, will survey both students and institutions, and will report in the autumn of 2013.
HEFCE will also monitor the targeting and take up of the awards through the annual returns that institutions make to the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
