2012 James S. Ashton Memorial Scholarship: Call for Applications


7 February 2012

Established in 1995 by donations through the initiative of Professor Fred and Claire Hilmer with the assistance of Susan and James W Ashton in memory of their son James S Ashton (BScAgr 1993) to encourage and assist outstanding undergraduate students in the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources and, from 2006, Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience students in the Faculty of Veterinary Science.

The scholarship may be awarded annually on the recommendation of the Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources on the advice of a Faculty Selection Committee to a student who enrols full-time in the Fourth Year of the BAnimVetBioSc or BScAgr degree, provided the student's work is of sufficient merit. The student would be deemed to show potential for making a significant contribution to the application of science and technology to the animal industries. While the student's overall background must be of sufficient merit, it is not intended that the scholarship be limited to the applicant with the strongest academic record. Additional criteria, including performance and potential in project work and professional experience work in animal science and related areas, evidence of integrity of character, diligence, and regard for fellow students, will also be taken into account. At the time of award, the recipient may not be in receipt of any other substantial scholarship award.
