Some award criteria designate financial need in addition to high academic achievement.
Where terms of reference specify the use of financial need and academic achievement as selection criteria for awards, selection will be based on highest financial need among students with a Cumulative Weighted Average (CWA) of 80% or greater in the area specified by the award.
Assessment of financial need will be calculated on guidelines similar to those of the Student Financial Assistance and Awards Office “financial need calculator”. See SPT policy on Financial Need Assessment for Awards.
