EW Stevens Scholarship fund
EW Stevens Scholarship Fund
The SAFF offers senior rural South Australian students the opportunity to gain financial assistance to continue their education through the E W Stevens Scholarship program. The annual scholarships assist students from the country, particularly isolated areas, to undertake courses of study at senior secondary or tertiary level.
The scholarship fund was set up at the bequest of former builder, the late Ernest Stevens, and has provided $145,000 in assistance since 1990.
The scholarships have provided assistance to students to pursue a range of academic areas, including veterinary science, agriculture, science, maths and social work, as well as helping secondary students to complete Years 11 and 12.
Scholarships are usually granted for one year, and are renewable depending on the financial circumstances of the parents and performance of the student. As part of the entry criteria, applicants are asked to demonstrate their academic achievements and provide evidence of their need for financial help to continue with their studies.
