Selection will require the recipient to meet a minimum academic achievement of a Class 2 Division 1 (distinction average or WAM of 75) for their Honours year.
Equal weighting will be given to academic performance and innovative thought and potential impact regardless of whether it is social, business or technological innovation.
A selection panel compromising of two specialist academics or researchers working in the area of innovation and a nominated Faculty PVC or the DVC (Academic) will assess the applications and select the student who best demonstrates original thinking and the most significant contribution to the field of innovation in their chosen discipline.
Where two students are of equal weighting based on their Honours year, the student with the highest overall cumulative WAM for their current undergraduate degree program will be selected.
