All applicants for the Massey University Doctoral Scholarships are considered for the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships. The Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships are awarded on academic ranking to the top students.
Deadline: 01 July 2013 & 01 Oct 2013
Doctoral Scholarships and Doctoral Scholarships for Maori are offered for the purpose of encouraging postgraduate research at Massey University and are awarded on academic ranking.
1.1 Up to 10 Vice-Chancellor’s Doctoral Scholarships are offered each year. Priority will be given to domestic students.
1.2 A designated number of Doctoral Scholarships are offered each year to applicants with a high Honours degree.
1.3 One Doctoral Scholarship for Maori students will be awarded each year.
The awarding of any Doctoral Scholarship is discretionary and is dependent upon funding.
The Doctoral Scholarships are open to persons who are enrolled or eligible to enrol full-time for a research paper of 120 credits during a 12 month period towards a Doctoral degree at Massey University. A full-time candidate will be expected to work 40 – 50 hours per week on their Doctoral qualification. Part-time applicants are not eligible. Applicants already holding a PhD are not eligible to apply. Consideration will normally only be given to students with a GPA of 7.0 or better (on a 9 point scale, or 3.7 on a 4 point scale), or an A- average or better in graduate level papers. Applicants who are completing Honours or Masters thesis or research report must be due to submit by the end of the year (for October applications).
Applicants holding academic qualifications from all countries other than New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, or the United States of America must arrange a course by course evaluation by:

The applicant is required to pay for the course by course evaluation, with the applicant and Massey University each receiving a copy of the resulting evaluation report. For students with overseas qualifications who are awarded a Doctoral Scholarship, a one off payment of up to $NZ250.00 will be made towards reimbursement of the cost of the evaluation report. Successful applicants will need to provide proof of payment (i.e. a receipt), in order for reimbursement to be made with the first monthly stipend. Applications are incomplete without this report and will not be considered.
