Government funding for universities should only be used for scholarships for best students. And all the other funding should come from student fee and private organizations. To what extent do you agree or disagree?政府对大学的资助应该仅用于最优秀的学生的奖学金，其他的资助的资金应该来自于学费和私人机构。同意与否?
Some people believe that all government funding should be used to award best students, and funding from student fee and private organizations can meet budget shortfalls of universities, but I cannot agree with this opinion.
Admittedly, using government funding to award excellent students can motivate students. When students receive scholarships from universities, they may have a feeling that they are also recognized by governments since those scholarships are sponsored by the authorities. Then, these top students may be more willing to study harder and make contributions to both their universities and society. However, there still exist demerits if government funding is only used for awarding top students.
To begin with, charging poor students may deprive them of the opportunity of learning. For some poor students, the only way for them to go to universities is to get a scholarship. However, if they do not perform well in the entrance examination for universities, they may not receive scholarships from governments. Then, they lose the access to universities, which actually means that they lose an opportunity of changing their life.
In addition, private organizations may refuse to fund universities anymore. It is common that private organizations will set some regulations for utilizing the funding they provide. For example, some organizations may regulate that their money can be only used to award students with some traits, such as their nationality or their beliefs, but not their academic performances. If universities chooses to use such funding for other purposes, private organizations may stop their financial support for universities in the future.
In sum, it may not be an optimal choice for universities to allocate all government funding to scholarships for top students and it is not wise for universities to raise all other funding from private organizations or rely on student fee, considering that private organizations often regulate the way money is used and poor students may not afford the expense of tertiary education.
