The Trust supports up to 15 Undergraduate Project and Masters by Coursework Scholarships each year These are usually awarded to students undertaking an Honours year, but also to students enrolled in 4 year courses which do not include a specific Honours Degree but which require the student to complete a research project and write a thesis.

The scholarships have been in effect since 2007. The total value is $7000.

Students planning appropriate Masters by Coursework studies can also apply for these scholarships.

Applications for 2019 scholarships close on Friday 23th November 2018.


The research project must be relevant to sheep and/or wool. This relevance is the most significant criterion considered by the selection panel in assessing applications.

The funds, unless otherwise specified, are split equally between the student and the University. The University’s component is to cover costs arising from the project. However, the University and the student may negotiate how these funds will be split and, consequently the split of the funds must be specified in the application.

The students are obligated to provide the Trust with an abstract or summary report of their Thesis for publication on Woolwise. Alternatively they can provide their Thesis or a copy of a journal paper produced from the material in the Thesis.


Applications for these scholarships must be made directly to the Trust (download application form) and must be supported by an academic referee from the University at which the student is or intends to enrol (download form for academic referee’s reference).
