If you are not sure of your eligibility then you are encouraged to apply and find out. Students seeking to be employed as tutors in Summer School, working part-time in the University or outside, completing their thesis on an extension, or currently enrolled in a PhD or MSc are not eligible for Summer Scholarships.

Note: Summer School Scholarship projects are not regarded as courses so do not have points associated with them that can be assigned to your degree.
