SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa says the awarding of scholarships in the past under the Public Service Commission, Multi Ethnic, and Fijian Affairs Board scholarship were fair.
Ro Teimumu said it represented a fairer distribution of government funds.
She added this was part of the SODELPA manifesto which was to be released on July 19.
"SODELPA will also focus ion the improvement of infrastructure and bettering the lives of individuals in the country," she said.
"Improvement of infrastructure is our priority and also of the past SDL government.
"No government can ever claim that they are the sole creator of any project because most of them are only remedial works on what other governments had done in the past."
Ro Teimumu said any government of the day was responsible for getting development to people in the rural areas.
"It is also the duty of any government to see that development touches people in all levels of society.
"At the end of the day the funds used for these development projects are derived from the very taxes that ordinary people give.
"Therefore all people in society have a right to get a fair share of the investment that government makes with their money."
Ro Teimumu was speaking at an interview during her tour to the North.
