University of Auckland Fulbright Scholarship

What is it?

The University of Auckland Council awards UA Fulbright Scholarships to encourage and facilitate study for approved postgraduate degrees at the University of Auckland by candidates already selected to hold Fulbright Awards. As a Fulbright Award fully supports a candidate for the first year, these scholarships are intended to enable Fulbright Award winners to complete degrees at the University of Auckland.

What does it cover?

In the case of a masters student, a scholarship shall be tenable (where appropriate) for the second year of study until the completion of the degree (or for twelve months, whichever is the lesser).
In the case of a doctoral candidate, a scholarship shall be tenable until submission of the thesis or for two years (whichever is the lesser).

The emolument attached to the scholarship is currently:

  • Masters students: $15,000.00 per annum plus research/tuition fees.
  • Doctoral students: $25,000 per annum plus research/tuition fees.

Who is eligible?

Citizens of the United States of America who are intending to take up Fulbright Awards to study in New Zealand and who intend to enrol full-time at the University of Auckland for an approved masters or doctoral degree. Three scholarships are available each year.
