The government has decided to shelve the creation of a scholarship program for college students without repayment obligation and only to stipulate that “the subject will be considered with an eye on various challenges” in its “Plan to Realize the Dynamic Engagement of All Citizens,” which will be finalized by the end of this month. The Liberal Democratic Party and the Komeito had sought to create a “benefit-type” program to ensure accessibility to equal educational opportunities. The subject will likely be discussed again when budgets for next year are compiled at the end of the year. (Abridged)
