The Ian Cocks Memorial Trust Wine Research Scholarship has been established by the Ian Cocks Memorial Trust to support undergraduate students who are undertaking an Honours degree in wine research at the University of Adelaide.

This scholarship is to foster innovation in the Wine Industry through strategic and applied research, and to cultivate a research culture in undergraduates in the wine related teaching and research disciplines and areas within the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine.

The scholarship is named in memory of Ian Campbell Cocks (1938-1997) whose contribution to South Australian tourism, the wine industry and commerce was highly regarded.

One scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolling in an Honours degree in wine research at the University of Adelaide. Both mid year intake and February intake students will be eligible. The value of the scholarship is $10,000 of which the student receives $9,000 and $1,000 will go to the teaching and research discipline area in the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine as a contribution to the maintenance costs of the research project.

Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia and must remain enrolled on a full time or part time basis at the discretion of the Head of Department. 

The recipient will be required to carry out a research project (minimum of 12 credit points) under the direction of an academic staff member in a wine related wine related teaching and research discipline and area within the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine. The research project will be determined on an annual basis and it is expected that the research will be undertaken in consultation with an industry partner who may contribute in-kind support to the project.

Selection of the successful candidate will be made according to academic merit, technical knowledge and communication skills. Academic merit for continuing students will be determined according to the students' cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) or equivalent scores.
