How a scholarship may be used
The scholarship may be used for conference attendance, the purchase or hire of equipment, fees incurred because of study commitments, short-term assistance with living expenses, or any other purpose that will assist with the completion of the postgraduate qualification. Note that if the scholarship is to be used for the purchase of equipment, the equipment must be for the personal possession and use of the applicant, not of her University department. The scholarship must be used within twelve months of the date of the award, i.e. by the end of June 2020.
Selection of winners is based primarily on academic merit, but also on the importance of the purpose for which the scholarship will be used to the progress or completion of the degree, on financial need as well as community activities and other interests.
The amount of the scholarship will not exceed $2,500 but may be less depending on the requirements of the successful applicant. A scholarship may be shared by two successful applicants. In exceptional circumstances the trustees of The AFUW-SA Inc. Trust Fund reserve the right not to award this scholarship.
