The Scholarship was established to commemorate Miss Dulcie Bowman who died in February 1996. In spite of suffering from a significant hearing disability Dulcie Bowman graduated from the University of Auckland and thereafter pursued a career in teaching. The Scholarship was established in 1996 by Dulcie Bowman’s sister, Miss Alva Bowman, who gifted a capital sum to fund the Award.

The main purpose of the Scholarship is to encourage hearing-impaired women students at either undergraduate or postgraduate levels. A bequest from Alva Bowman’s estate allowed the Scholarship to be increased in value in 2002, also making it possible to offer two scholarships a year instead of one.
