In order to address the problem of school drop out, the provincial government of Bali has prepared a scholarship allocation of Rp. 132 billion (US$11.48 million) in the Island’s 2014 budget.

The head of the Education, Youth Affairs and Sport Service for the Province, Tia Kusuma Wardhani, told that the funds allocated for scholarships for the poor have increased Rp. 4 billion when compared to last year's budget in order that children will not drop out of school due to financial need.

The Rp. 132 billion will provide scholarships for 106,067 students.

Tia Kusuma explained that in 2014 scholarship support would be given to 56,245 grade school students in the amount of Rp. 620,000 per student per year.

20,857 junior high students in Bali will receive Rp. 890,000 per student per year.

Meanwhile, 11.085 high school students will each receive Rp. 2 million per student.

A total 17,880 student attending technical high school will also receive Rp. 2 million this year.

The money is disbursed to the heads of the schools providing educations to impoverished students who must, in turn, account for the use of the funds.

The funds provided by the province can be used by school principals to pay tuition, practicums, clothing, books or transportation.
