The AC/137(S) chronological series contains the records of the Science Committee Working Group on Scholarships. The Working Group was set up at the first meeting of the Science Committee, and its terms of reference were immediately defined (see AC/137-R/1). The Working Group was tasked with gathering intelligence on the frequency of university student exchanges. It also had to provide the Science Committee with proposals on NATO’s co-ordination of the frequency of the exchanges, on the Organization’s financial or other assistance in support of the countries’ student exchange efforts, and finally on NATO’s establishment of a centre tasked with co-ordinating those exchanges.It was also up to the Working Group to provide advice on promoting summer courses and the scholarships to be awarded to those registered for summer courses. After this first meeting, the documents on scholarships were incorporated into the Science Committee’s chronological document series under the reference AC/137.
