All scholarships will have eligibility criteria which will be used to determine which applications advance to be assessed. The eligibility criteria will be clearly stated on the Scholarship page and within the scholarship rules.
Some scholarships may have sub-quotas available to specific student groups. Where this is the case, this will be stated on scholarship page and/or the scholarship rules.
Quotas can be used where scholarship applicants come from differing pathways, or to ensure that students from different Colleges have access to scholarships that are open to multiple Colleges or University wide.
Ranking and Assessment
Scholarship applicants who do not meet all the required criteria will be deemed to have failed the initial assessment and will be made unsuccessful. Unsuccessful applicants will be advised of this as soon as possible.
Applications that meet all eligibility criteria will then be ranked according to the selection criteria described on our webpage and outlined in the scholarship rules.
Selection may be undertaken by a delegated officer or a selection committee, convened for the purpose.
Participants in any selection process who have an actual, perceived or potential conflict of interest will be required to declare this prior to any selection decision. Where this arises, the matter will be managed under the University’s Conflict of Interest Policy.
