- career aspirations (addressed through questions in the application process); and
- likely success in completing the proposed course of study (addressed through questions in the application process).
The Dean, on the recommendation of the selection committee, will approve the recipients who may be offered the scholarship with their letter of offer from the faculty or once the student has accepted their place and successfully enrolled in the course, by census date (around March 31).
