Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate a high level of academic achievement and are strongly urged to be actively associated with the university’s AusIMM Student Chapter. The recipients of this prize should not be eligible for any other major awards at the same time; nevertheless, this does not preclude them from applying for other scholarships.
