The Scholarships were established in 2009 and are funded by a retired University of Auckland staff member.
The purpose of these Scholarships is to enable students who have obtained a degree in Theology from the University of Auckland or another approved theological institution to enrol in postgraduate study at the University of Auckland or an approved overseas theological institution, and thus accept opportunities which they might not otherwise be able to undertake.
