be paid on September 30, 2006 *.
These criteria are very specific, and all are levels of achievement that were met or surpassed by Bruce Bowyer in his lifetime. We are looking for students whose interests are similar to what Bruce’s were, in the hope that we can inspire the kind of people we admire, to achieve their life’s goals.

The award recipient will
be chosen based on the highest ranked values in each of the above
criteria. In the case of more than one student
having identical highest scores, the award will be based on earliest
submission of all required docs, within the specified date range
and before the deadline date, based on the postal mark. Weighted
rankings of the criteria will be determined by us, and the award
be made at the sole discretion of the Bruce Bowyer Foundation.
