The annual value of each scholarship is up to $3000. The money is paid in May subject to academic progress satisfactory to the Applied Academic Programmes Scholarships Committee.
The scholarship is offered annually as funds permit.
The maximum tenure of the scholarship is the minimum number of years necessary to graduate in the degree in which the applicant enrolled. The scholarship tenure is normally for one year only but recipients are welcome to apply again in future years.
