The Award was established in 1996 and is funded by The Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust.

The main purpose of the Award is to assist women graduates to carry out study for a masters degree at Waipapa Taumata Rau, University of Auckland. The Award is intended for students studying full-time towards a qualification; however, the Trustees recognise that health conditions or impairments can limit a person’s ability to study full-time and have extended the Award in 2023 to include part-time study on a case-by-case basis.
