The Sally Smith Commencement Grant in Soil, Agriculture, Food and Wine Sciences has been established by Frank Andrew Smith in honour of his wife Sally Smith.

This Grant will support a commencing student in financial need undertaking a program of study in the sciences of soil, agriculture, food or wine at the University of Adelaide. Preference will be given to students who are relocating from a regional, rural or remote area, or experiencing another disadvantage. 

One Grant shall be awarded annually and will provide assistance with education and living costs in the first year of the recipients studies.

Applicants must be Australian Citizens, 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 (unless there are special circumstances preventing this, such as disability) in the program for which the scholarship was approved.

Selection of the successful candidate will be made according to financial need. Preference will be given to a student who has relocated from a regional, rural or remote location to undertake study at the University of Adelaide.

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

Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide scholarships may apply for this Grant.
