A SHOP in Labasa is in the spotlight for selling old PSC scholarship application forms for a dollar.
The PSC does not intend to name the shop as the matter has been reported to the police, and it also has yet to determine how many forms have been sold.
PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said this was wrong because application forms were only made available when a particular type of scholarship is announced or advertised.
He said all students interested in applying for the 2014 PSC Local Scholarship, Multi Ethnic Awards and Student Loan Scheme would need to apply once the announcement was made.
"We have found out that this particular shop was selling the old PSC scholarship application forms to students who still have the old scholarship office address as Reverend John Hunt Building," Mr Chand said.
"This is a real concern for us and we have notified the police in the North accordingly to immediately stop this practice of misleading students."
According to the commission, scholarship application forms are free and accessible online or available at the PSC scholarships office or Government Service Centres in Suva, Nausori, Lautoka and Labasa.
Students are encouraged to visit the centre closest or within their vicinity or town for the latest updates on PSC scholarships.
"We will only give exception to students who live in rural or remote areas and who have absolutely no access to the internet. Hard copies of e-gov applications will be made available at the GSCs and with school principals, upon request."
