Geoffrey A Rowan Memorial Bursary
$1,000 (subject to available funds)
No application required
This prize is awarded to the best 300-level mathematics student who enrols for an Honours degree in mathematical sciences.
This bursary arises from funds given by Mrs Rowan in memory of her husband, a former student of Victoria University College and graduate in mathematics, who lost his life while serving in the Royal New Zealand Navy in World War Two. Its aim is to help a student study mathematical sciences at Honours level at Victoria University of Wellington.
The candidate will be the best student in 300-level mathematics who then enrols for an Honours degree in mathematical sciences.
The recipient is encouraged to use some the prize to purchase a book or books.
Recipients will be asked to write a letter of thanks, which will be forwarded appropriately.
