The Scholarship was established in 1984 as a result of the generosity of practising town planners, the New Zealand Planning Institute and others on the occasion of the Silver Jubilee of the former Planning Department.
In marking the first 25 years of the former Planning Department it especially commemorates the contributions of:
(a) Professor C R Knight, Dean of Architecture, who, over so many years, advocated the introduction of a Town Planning programme;
(b) Mr N B Spencer, whose outstanding generosity made it possible by providing funding to cover the first five years’ salary of the inaugural professor;
(c) Professor R T Kennedy who, as the first Head, established the Department and held the Chair from 1957 to 1969; and
(d) Professor I E Boileau who held the chair from 1970 until his retirement in 1983.
The purpose of the award is to encourage postgraduate study in the School of Architecture and Planning.
