Photocopies of official transcripts are acceptable; web-printed transcripts lacking the proper seal and signature are not. Applicants are requested to submit high-resolution transcripts that are easy to read; those who submit difficult to read transcripts will be asked to resubmit a higher resolution version, which may delay processing of the application.

Submitting Applications

Please read the following instructions for submitting applications. Failure to comply with this request may delay the processing of your application and hinder your chances of being selected for an interview.

● All application materials must be emailed to apply@scoville.org. In the subject line write Scoville Application–Last name of applicant. Do not submit more than one copy of your application.

● Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit all application items as one compiled Adobe PDF file or Microsoft Word document in the order listed above.  Transcripts should be listed in chronological order beginning with freshman year courses and grades. We understand that some reference writers and universities prefer to send letters and transcripts directly to a potential employer. In that case these items should be emailed to apply@scoville.org. We will reluctantly accept reference letters and transcripts in paper copies if they are not available as emails.

● Items 1-4 must be emailed as a single PDF or Word document and must not exceed 10 pages. We will not accept any of these documents in paper form.

● Applicants are responsible for ensuring that all materials, including reference letters and transcripts, arrive on time. Owing to the time it takes to process applications the program will not be able to confirm the arrival of items for several weeks after the deadline. Therefore applicants should confirm with their reference writers and universities that items have been submitted. Failure to send all items on time may adversely impact a candidate’s application.

● We request that complete applications not exceed 2 MB. Applicants may need to condense items in PDF and/or scan transcripts in black and white rather than color to minimize the email space. Scanned items should not exceed 150 dpi. We only accept materials submitted in PDF or Word formats.

● Official academic transcripts should be scanned and emailed rather than sent in the mail. Applicants should scan and email multi-page transcripts as a single attachment rather than send a separate attachment for each page of the transcript. Transcripts from undergraduate, graduate, and foreign study should be submitted in chronological order in a single attachment. Do not send email copies of transcripts that need to be downloaded or that require a password to open; these transcripts are only available to be downloaded for a limited time and are difficult to merge into a PDF document. Instead print, scan, and email the transcript as an attachment. Applicants may need to rotate their transcripts 90 degrees so they can be read on the computer. Applicants are asked not to submit copies of certificates or diplomas.

● Applicants are requested to list their name on each page of the application and to number each page of a multi-page document.

● Board members reviewing applications will only read items sent as attachments. Any message to the program director may be sent in a separate email to apply@scoville.org.

● Applicants should not submit blank pages or extraneous documents.

● Applicants are requested not to submit materials more than one month prior to the deadline.

● In order to expedite the processing of the applications we request that applicants and others submitting materials on their behalf use the following titles when naming attachments:

If you are submitting all required items in a single email, including all transcripts and reference letters, title the attachment Last name of applicant-Complete

If one or both of your reference letters or your transcript is being sent separately, either by email or mail, title your attachments as follows:

Application Item Title of attached document
Items 1-4 Last name of applicant-1-4
Items 1-4 and all transcripts Last name of applicant-1-5
Official transcript(s) Last name of applicant-Transcript
Two letters of reference Last name of applicant-Last name of letter writer

● There is no need to write Scoville Fellowship or the semester for which you are applying in the title of each document.

Reference letters and transcripts that are not available by email may be mailed to

2015 Full Master Scholarships at South Australia University

Deadline: 31 August 2015
Open to: Australian and International graduates
Scholarship: annual stipend of $25,849, tuition fees, health insurance

Description

The University of South Australia is a globally-focused, locally-engaged institution established on the dual principles of equity and excellence. With more than 33,000 students, the university is South Australia’s largest and has more than 10,000 International students.

The University of South Australia is inviting applications for the President’s Scholarships available for Australian and International students and awarded on the basis of academic merit. Scholarships are available to support students enrolling in areas of research concentration and research strength and are nearly always given to doctorate by research candidates but can be given to masters by research candidates in some cases.

Eligibility

In order to be eligible for the scholarship you must have a University of South Australia supervisor willing to nominate you for consideration and outstanding academic records, and be a citizen of an overseas country eligible for entry to Australia for the time required to complete the research degree.

Criteria for Australian applicants:

  • Generally an applicant must have first-class Honours or equivalent to be eligible;
  • Scholarships are awarded on the basis that the candidate will be studying full-time. In some cases, candidates can apply to receive scholarships on a part-time basis if there are compelling social reasons (eg the need to provide full-time care of children, disabled, sick, injured or elderly). The need to undertake part- or full-time work is not considered a compelling social reason.

Criteria for International applicants:

  • Generally an applicant must have first-class Honours or equivalent to be eligible;
  • An awardee must be enrolled on a full-time basis as a candidate for a Masters by Research or PhD at the University of South Australia.
  • An awardee shall be enrolled as an internal candidate at the University of South Australia.

Scholarship

The UPS scholarship includes a living allowance of at least $25,849 per annum. In addition UPS will cover tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover.
