EXHIBITIONS, SCHOLARSHIPS, ETC. XLIX. The following Royal Exhibitions, National Exhibitions,

Scholarships &c. Scholarships, Local Scholarships, and Free Studentships are open only to British subjects, and the Board may refuse to award them to persons whose financial circumstances do not warrant such aid. As a rule the foregoing exhibitions and scholarships cannot be held by the same person concurrently with scholarships granted by County Councils. The Board may withhold any of these awards should the standard of the candidates' attainments be unsatisfactory, or transfer them to other groups in the current competition.

Where the conditions of Exhibitions or Scholarships have been modified the interests of existing Exhibitioners and Scholarship holders will not be adversely affected. SCIENCE
