Gottstein Industry Awards

To further promote personal development, the Gottstein Trust created its Skill Advancement Award in 1998. The Award is a monetary grant that is provided to applicants at any level, who can demonstrate how this support would improve their professional skills and advance their career prospects.

The Award is different from a Fellowship in that it generally covers a lower level of training and it does not usually involve overseas travel. In addition, the report is not required to be as comprehensive as that for a Fellow.

Application Process


Applicants are selected based on the relevance of the chosen project. There are no formal or tertiary educational requirements, although a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s employer is desirable.

Read the General Terms and Conditions


Candidates should provide the following papers to apply for an Award:

  1. Completed application form;
  2. Covering letter demonstrating abilities and commitment to the industry and level of study that the applicant intends to enrol in;
  3. Employer’s recommendation letter.
