Selection of the scholar will be on the basis of academic merit and contribution to community environmental activities.
- Academic record will be supplied by the University after the application has been submitted. The assessment will, in the first instance, focus on results in environmental courses. In the case of students enrolled in the Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management this means performance in 2000 level environmental courses; or Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental) this means performance in 3000 level courses.
- Contribution to community environmental activities including past and present community environmental achievements will also be assessed. In a written application, applicants must clearly demonstrate the contribution(s) they have made in terms of community environmental advancement or involvement. Work experience (paid) and coursework projects which have been undertaken for the applicants career advancement should be included and identified but will be of a lesser weighting value in this assessment. Referees contact details (email etc) need to be provided.
- Academic performance and community environmental contributions will attract weightings of 66% and 33% respectively upon which award recommendations will be based.
- Optionally, written references of up to two pages in length from referees who know the applicant well will be well regarded in supporting merit claims in academic or community based involvement.
- The Selection Committee may at its discretion request confidential academic references from the Program Co-ordinators for the Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management and Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental) where it feels this will help determine the best applicant, should more than one applicant share the same final score. The Selection Committee may also contact the applicants or referees to answer additional questions where it feels this will help determine the best applicant, should more than one applicant share the same final score.
