There will be five prize winners, who will be eligible to win a prize of up to $4000 each and will be offered entry into the UNSW Science 50:50 program if they are enrolled into a full-time Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths degree at UNSW Australia as at 31 March 2016.

The prize of up to four thousand dollars ($4000) will be paid to each of the five winners in the following instalments, at the specified times, if they meet the following conditions:

(a)        $2000 in April 2016, if the winner:

 i.        completes her first year of university in “good standing” after completing a full-time load in both semesters one and two of the academic year. “Good standing” means that the winner must achieve a “pass” mark or higher, as the final result, in more than half of the subjects which she enrols in for each semester; and

 ii.        as at 31 March 2017, is enrolled as a full time student in a STEM degree at an Australian university.


Five “Runners-up”

There will also be five “runners-up” who are judged by the judging panel as having submitted the next 5 best entries. If those runners-up are enrolled in a full-time STEM degree at UNSW Australia as at 31st March 2016, those runners-up will also be offered entry into the “UNSW Science 50:50 program” with access to the same benefits and opportunities described in clause 5.2(b) of the Terms and Conditions. If a winner becomes ineligible to receive a monetary prize, the runner-up judged to have submitted the next best entry, will become eligible to receive a monetary prize, provided that the runner-up satisfies and agrees to the conditions set out in the Terms and Conditions (in particular clauses 5.2 to 5.7 (inclusive) and clause 5.14).

Details regarding the provision of information and documents to UNSW Australia are set out in clauses 5.4 to 5.8 of the Competition Terms and Conditions.
