The Auckland University Technology is offering master’s research scholarship. The scholarship is available for New Zealand citizens or permanent resident of New Zealand.
Course Level: Scholarships are available to study master’s research program.
Eligible Countries: New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident of New Zealand.
Eligibility Criteria: Scholarships are offered to outstanding students at any NZ university, for study towards research in either a Masters or a PhD degree in a wide range of disciplines, provided the research is in the broad fields of Humanities (i.e. the study of human culture, especially literature, languages, history, art, music and philosophy) or Social Sciences (i.e. the scientific study of any aspect of social behaviour and/or the functioning of society). Candidates whose degree programmers do not appear to fit in these categories, but who feel that their research qualifies them, will be asked to justify this view in their applications. Research proposals that are focused on contemporary issues and are forward-looking, with an interdisciplinary aspect, may be preferred.

- Students may apply in anticipation of, or during, their postgraduate study, but note there is only one application round per year.
