How to apply
It’s easy! When you apply for a place at the University, you will have the opportunity to confirm whether or not you also wish to be considered for a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship — you don’t need to apply separately.
There are no scholarship "rounds" or application forms. This means you can apply for a place on a doctoral programme when you are ready, safe in the knowledge that you will also be assessed for the scholarship when your grades are confirmed.
Scholarship offers will be made alongside offers of places in doctoral programmes.
