Antarctica New Zealand recognises the value of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean as a unique environment for scientific research. We are committed to the valuable contribution that Antarctic science can make to the international knowledge base and understanding of Antarctica and global ecosystems and processes. The Postgraduate Research Scholarship Programme is designed to encourage researchers to pursue interests in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Antarctica New Zealand, Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World, and New Zealand Post are generously supporting this scholarship programme.
Three scholarships are offered for the 2015/16 season:
Sir Robin Irvine Scholarship
Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Scholarship
New Zealand Post Antarctic Scholarship
The scholarship award is expected to contribute towards research costs, travel, fees and living expenses incurred during the scholarship period.
Antarctica New Zealand will cover the costs for the scholar’s transport between Antarctica and Christchurch, living costs at Scott Base or in the field, reasonable transport needs in Antarctica, field equipment supplied at Scott Base, clothing hire and e-mail communications.
