  • Be of excellent character and have a commitment to ethical leadership.

  • Keep Cambridge Australia Scholarships informed about their academic and other activities at the end of each term and on completion of their course; and

  • Allow Cambridge Australia Scholarships to publicise their achievements as scholars.

  • Meet with past, current and prospective scholars; and

  • Make contributions to the scholarship fund where possible.
