The Frances Adamson Scholarship has been established by the Adelaide University Sports and Fitness Association and Mr Warren Hicks.  The Scholarship is in honour of Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia. Her Excellency graduated from the University of Adelaide with a degree in Economics in 1985. While studying, Her Excellency was inaugural female captain of the Adelaide University Boat Club, during the 1984/85 seasons.  

One scholarship shall be awarded annually to a student who is undertaking an undergraduate, honours or postgraduate coursework program of study at the University of Adelaide and has been identified as a member of the Adelaide University Sports and Fitness Association.

Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia 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 approved. Students should be an active financial member of the Adelaide University Boat Club.

Selection of the successful candidates will be made according to financial need, demonstrated details of sporting prowess and contributions to the Adelaide University Boat Club.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need and be able to provide supporting documentary evidence at the time of application, e.g. details of income tested Commonwealth income support payment, such as Youth Allowance, Austudy, ABSTUDY benefits, or other details of their financial circumstances.

The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is offered: acceptance of the Scholarship 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.
