    Selection Criteria

    The scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic excellence and golfing excellence (preference will be given to students with a handicap of 5 or less, and/or category 1 golfers). If there are no qualified candidates meeting this criteria in any given year, the scholarship may be awarded to another sportsperson who has shown excellence in his or her choosen sport.
