The Award was established in 2012 and is funded by the Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust. From 2015, the University of Auckland will administer the Award on behalf of the Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust for University of Auckland applicants.
The main purpose of the Award is to assist a woman graduate who has completed a minimum of four years of part-time study towards a PhD or named Doctorate, to have at least four months free of employment and become a full-time student, in order to make substantial progress towards completion of a PhD or named Doctorate qualification.
This Award is also open to eligible students from other approved institutions in the Auckland area, who should apply using the application form available from the website: http://www.

How to apply

Please read the regulations carefully to be sure you are eligible before you apply.  Then click on the blue “Apply here” button and complete the online application form.

Scholarship applications will usually open around 6 weeks before the closing date.  We recommend you check the form early for any request sections, in case a referee or supervisor is required to support your application and to familiarise yourself with the form.  Apart from any sections that are sent to a referee to endorse, you can go in to your form and amend your answers for all other sections up to the closing date.  All sections (including any request sections) must be submitted by the closing date, which is midnight on the specified date (unless stated otherwise).   We recommend you do not have two different scholarship applications open within the same browser.

Outcomes are determined by a selection committee and are usually notified around six weeks after the closing date.
