University of Waikato Sir William Gallagher Cyber Security Scholarship

The Sir William Gallagher Cyber Security Scholarship was established in 2015 to support academically talented students studying towards a Master of Cyber Security qualification at the University of Waikato.

Sir William Gallagher is a long-standing supporter of the University of Waikato and Hamilton-based Gallagher is one of the world’s leading technology innovators in physical security systems.

The Sir William Gallagher Cyber Security Scholarship will provide students studying in the Master of Cyber Security Programme with both financial support and industry experience through a research project at Gallagher. The Scholarship will cover student tuition fees and a stipend.

The purpose of the Sir William Gallagher Cyber Security Scholarship is to assist students to undertake a Master of Cyber Security (MCS) at the University of Waikato and to gain industry experience with Gallagher.

One Scholarship will be awarded annually

Eligibility

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • be accepted into, and enrol full-time in, a Master of Cyber Security at the University of Waikato; and
  • be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.

The recipient must enrol in either COMP592 (60 points), COMP593 (90 points) or COMP594 (120 points) and undertake an industry-based research project with Gallagher.

Throughout the course of the research project the recipient may have the opportunity to gain work experience with Gallagher. This would be paid employment outside the scope of this Scholarship. The days and hours of any such employment will be discussed and mutually agreed by the student and Gallagher and will not be at the expense of the student’s research and/or study.

Value

The value of the Scholarship will be NZ$25,000 for students undertaking a 180-point MCS and NZ$20,000 for a 120-point MCS.

The Scholarship will be applied to tuition fees first and the balance will then be paid in monthly instalments of equal amount, subject to the recipient meeting the Scholarship continuation requirements (refer to clause 7.4).
