The Scholarships were established in 2016 and are funded by the Mont Liggins Memorial Fund. The intention of the scholarships is to encourage and support academically excellent students to undertake a Master of Science or Master of Health Sciences that falls within one or more of the strategic research themes of the University of Auckland Liggins Institute.

The Liggins Institute has a number of overlapping research themes exploring the ways in which factors in the early life environment affect health throughout the life course and influence the health of following generations. A particular focus is on the effect of altered early life nutrition on later life health. Opportunities span basic science, clinical and translational research platforms.
