University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship Extension
If you hold a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship or you have been receiving external funding, you may be eligible to apply for a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship Extension.
This Extension is for up to 6 months and is paid at the same rate as a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship, ie $33,000 p.a stipend in 2023 plus full fees and international health insurance, if applicable.
You can apply from around 3 months before the end date of your current funding. Please read the University of Auckland Doctoral Extension Guidelines below to determine your eligibility and the category you should apply under.
Endorsements of your progress and date and timeline to submission of your thesis will be required from both your supervisor and your Head of Department.
For more information, read the University of Auckland Doctoral Extension Guidelines.
If you are a full-time PhD student beginning your fourth and final year of enrolment, you can apply to have your enrolment split into two six-month blocks. For more information, visit Split enrolment for doctoral candidates.
