The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which they are offered: acceptance of the Scholarship cannot be deferred. If a student declines the scholarship offer, the scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.
Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide Scholarships may not apply for this Scholarship
