Overview

Only for full time students.

The SAAFoST Foundation makes available an Aubrey Parsons study grant for each of the Departments of Food Science at the Universities of Stellenbosch, Pretoria, Venda and the Free State and the Departments of Food Technology at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Durban University of Technology, the Tshwane University of Technology and the University of Johannesburg, based on performance, to the total value of R20 000 each, for the B.Sc (Hons) year(s) at Universities or the B-Tech year(s) at Universities of Technology. However, irrespective of how many years said B.Sc (Hons) or B.Tech actually take only a total of R 20 000 will be made available to a student.

Criteria

The students must have been members of SAAFoST for at least 12 months preceding the application. Nominations and recommendations by the Department Heads, based firstly on academic excellence and secondly, on need, must reach the SAAFoST Membership Development Officer by 15 February each year. The students should have an undisputed record of academic distinction, and maintain an average of at least 70% in their previous academic years. Nominations should include a copy of the nominee’s academic record for the previous academic years. Only one student per Tertiary Institution can be nominated and awards cannot be shared and are not transferable.

The SAAFoST Foundation will adjudicate the nominations and their decision will be final. The award will be presented at a meeting of the local branch of SAAFoST or at another suitable SAAFoST event. Payment will be made to the institution towards the fees.
