The John Ridley Memorial Scholarship was established by Public Trustee, as Trustee for the John Ridley Memorial Trust, which was established in 1913 to perpetuate the memory of John Ridley who invented "The Stripper" - the world's first mechanical grain harvester.

The scholarship is to benefit students who are undertaking a program of study in the field of agriculture or animal science at the University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Campus. 

One scholarship shall be awarded annually to a student undertaking an Honours degree in the area of Agriculture or Animal Science program of study at the University of Adelaide's Roseworthy Campus. The recipient must have successfully completed either the Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences or Bachelor of Science (Animal Science).

Recipients must be Australian citizens, New Zealand citizen, permanent residents of Australia or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa undertaking study as a Commonwealth supported student and must remain enrolled on a full time basis in the approved program for which the scholarship was awarded.

Selection of the successful candidate will be made according to academic merit.  Academic merit will be assessed based on the cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) achieved by students over their prior three years of study in the Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences or Bachelor of Science (Animal Science) program.

The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is offered; acceptance of the scholarship offer cannot be deferred. If a student declines the scholarship offer, the scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.

Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide Scholarships may not apply for this Scholarship.
