Java Scholarships

Sun Microsystems and PC World would like to make a correction to information that appeared in Backbytes Skills in August 2002.

In 2001 Sun Microsystems offered 30 Java Scholarships in New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria (VIC), all of which have been awarded and successfully completed by winning entrants.

The report incorrectly stated that additional NSW and VIC scholarships were available in August 2002. Sun Microsystems does not offer Java Scholarships to students in NSW and VIC for the 2002 calendar year.

The report also correctly stated that in June 2002, Sun Microsystems extended the Java Scholarship program to South Australia (SA). Applications for the SA scholarships closed in October and the 10 winning entrants will be notified in December 2002.
