New Zealand Summer Student Scholarship
Deadline: September 28
The University of Auckland has a New Zealand summer research scholarship available that is open for applications until the end of September. This scholarship will award at least one international student at the University of Auckland NZ$5000 toward their research project that is focused on marine science. Assistance with finding accommodation and obtaining a visa will also be provided. The research project will last eight weeks, beginning in December and ending in February. Upon completion of the project, a short project report submission will be required of the awardee.
Interested students must meet the following eligibility criteria:
• Have completed their second year of an undergraduate degree
• Have a minimum of a B+ grade average (GPA equivalent to a 6.0)
• Have a clear project outline and supervisor to support the research
The New Zealand Summer Student Scholarship was created to give university students a chance to conduct research prior to graduation and encourage postgraduate studies. Students who receive this award must be able to commit to a full-time work schedule in regards to their project.
