We are offering these scholarships on behalf of the Ministry of Health. Masters or postdoctoral scholarships are available to support the career development of emerging health researchers seeking to prevent and minimise gambling-related harm for Māori in New Zealand.

One postdoctoral scholarship is also available for a term of four years. This includes a stipend and payment of working expenses valued at up to $410,000.

Eligibility criteria

Masters scholarship

To be eligible for the preventing and minimising gambling-related harm masters scholarship for Māori, you'll need to be a New Zealand citizen or hold residency in New Zealand, and be of Māori descent. Most successful applicants are enrolled full-time, however, we do consider applications from students enrolled part-time. If you haven't yet enrolled for your proposed course of study, but are intending to do so, you can also apply for this scholarship (if you are awarded a scholarship, this will then be conditional on your successful enrolment). During the time of the scholarship, your only activity must be the conduct of research and the preparation of a thesis or dissertation. If you're undertaking courses involving completion of papers only, you won't be eligible for this scholarship.

Postdoctoral scholarship

To be eligible for the preventing and minimising gambling-related harm postdoctoral scholarship for Māori, you'll need to be a New Zealand citizen or hold residency in New Zealand, and be of Māori descent. You'll also need to have a proven track record of research in the area of Māori health development, hold a degree of doctor of philosophy (or an equivalent degree), and ideally not have had more than five years of postdoctoral experience. If you haven't received the results of your thesis examination, you can still apply - any scholarship you may receive will then be conditional on you being awarded the degree.
