The Scholarship was established in 2023 and is funded by the Auckland Library Heritage Trust in recognition of foundation trustee John Stacpoole and his significant financial contributions and years of service on the Trust. He was a New Zealand heritage architect, historian and bibliophile who was responsible for the preservation and restoration of many historic buildings in Auckland and Northland.

The main purpose of the Scholarship is to give current international and domestic university students an opportunity to experience research in aspects of Auckland history, and to thereby encourage them to pursue postgraduate study at Waipapa Taumata Rau, University of Auckland, and to promote the heritage collections under the guardianship of the Trust and advance the study of Auckland history.
