PhD Scholarships are available to support PhD students enrolled at a New Zealand university and planning a career in health research. The Committee provides up to $40,000 per year over three years to support a PhD scholarship, made up of a stipend of $30,000, plus fees of up to $10,000 each year.
Requests for part-time scholarships will be considered, on a pro rata basis.
For PhD Scholarship grant requests, you need to provide:
- an official academic transcript of the proposed PhD Scholar
- a letter of support from the applicant's Primary supervisor
- written evidence of approval from the relevant research ethical committee for their region and discipline, if applicable
- a copy of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms or Biosecurity approval, if applicable.
Grant offers lapse after 12 months if the PhD Scholarship has not started.
Organisations requesting grants for Post-doctoral Fellowships and PhD Scholarships in health research will be advised of the Committee’s decision before the end of the current calendar year.
