Francis Small Scholarship

engineering students scholarships banners 12

The Scholarship was established in 2015 by Dr Francis Small, who graduated with a ME and PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Auckland. This led to a successful career and he became the Managing Director of New Zealand Rail and Tranz Rail Ltd. His wish is to enable others to study for an ME and experience the opportunities that this will create for them.
The main purpose of the Scholarship is to assist a student to undertake research masters study in Engineering, especially where this funding would make a significant contribution to their financial needs. This Scholarship is shared with the University of Canterbury and therefore will be offered to University of Auckland students on a biennial basis.
