2020 Pacific health research PhD scholarships

Our Pacific PhD scholarships provide three years of personal support for outstanding graduates undertaking a PhD in any discipline related to improving the health of Pacific peoples. The value of the scholarship is $30,000 (tax-free stipend) per annum, with other benefits including a $10,000 grant for working expenses and a $3,000 grant for mentoring costs.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible for one of these scholarships, you'll need to be a New Zealand citizen or hold residency in New Zealand, and be of indigenous Pacific descent. Usually, applicants will be enrolled full-time for a degree at the doctoral level, often a doctorate of philosophy at a New Zealand university. However, we will consider applications from applicants enrolled in other doctoral degrees or who are enrolled part-time. If you haven't yet enrolled for your proposed course of study, but are intending to do so, you can still apply - in this case, any scholarship you may receive will be conditional on your successful enrolment.

Firstly, you'll need to register your intention to submit an application for this scholarship. Registration must be completed online via HRC Gateway.
