Opening Date: 11-01-2019
Closing Date: 29-03-2019
For women, who are Australian citizens or permanent residents, enrolled in a postgraduate Masters degree (by research or including a thesis) at a South Australian university.
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 referees’ report, on financial need as well as community activities and other interests.
The amount of each scholarship will not exceed $3,000 but may be less depending on requirements of the successful applicant/s, if more than one scholarship is offered based on applicant rankings and funds available. No one will be awarded more than one scholarship in any one year. In exceptional circumstances the trustees of the AFUW-SA Inc. Trust Fund reserve the right not to award a scholarship.
Source of funds
Until 2009 funds for these scholarships were raised annually by the Academic Hoods and Gowns Hiring Service run on a voluntary basis by the trustees, members of The AFUW-SA Inc. (later GWSA Inc.) and friends. Funds are now sourced from investments, bequests and donations.
Application forms can be downloaded from the AFUW-SA website listed below.
Your application must reach the Trust Fund's secretarial service by 29 March, 2019.
