- The applicant must provide a 200 word motivation statement outlining why they wish to be considered for the scholarship.

*Evidence of the candidate not being funded by his/her academic institution must be submitted in the form of an OFFICIAL LETTER on the institution’s headed paper and signed by the relevant staff member (e.g. Research Secretary or Doctoral Supervisor) stating that the candidate is self-funded for IPCITI 2014).
