C) Preference will be given to applicants who have completed the major portion of their public school education in Yukon schools.
D) Awards may be made without regard to an applicant's receipt of other financial awards.
E) Where two or more applicants appear to qualify, financial need may be taken into consideration.
F) While the bursary may not necessarily be awarded each year, more than one bursary may be considered in a given year.
