Learn how to apply for the RHT Bates Postgraduate Scholarship
Applicants must have physical sciences or engineering as a significant part of their undergraduate degree. For the purposes of this scholarship, physical sciences shall be deemed to mean physics, chemistry and mathematical and information sciences. At the time of application students must be engaged in postgraduate studies (honours, masters or doctorate). Students in their final year of undergraduate study are ineligible to apply. To receive the scholarship, candidates must be enrolled for a doctorate course at a New Zealand University and must be engaged in the course for the greater part of the period of the Scholarship, i.e. for most, if not all, of 2018-2019. This requirement does not limit the award to New Zealanders; however, it will require a successful candidate to transfer from a masterate or honours course to a doctoral course.
