How a scholarship may be used
The scholarship may be used for conference attendance, the purchase or hire of equipment, costs 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 2022.
Selection of winners is based on financial need, the impact of the scholarship on progress, referees’ comments, the purpose for which the scholarship will be used, and the applicant’s academic profile and contribution to the academic and wider community.
The amount of the scholarship will not exceed $2,000 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.
