The Sir George Elliot Charitable Trust each year awards three Sir George Elliot Tertiary Scholarships worth $25,000,
this being an amount that represents substantial help throughout the period of the first degree.
Initially there will be three scholarships awarded each year.
Scholars will be supported with advice and guidance and the trust intends to be flexible in applying the guidelines it has established.
The intention is clear, however – this is an investment in success and, through that success, in the development of the kind of community that Sir George Elliot worked towards in the first half of the twentieth century and towards which the trust will work in the early part of the next.
