Masterate Scholarships and Masterate Scholarships for Maori Students are offered for the purpose of encouraging postgraduate research at Massey University. The number of Masterate Scholarships awarded each year is discretionary and will be contingent on available funding. Up to two Masterate Scholarships for Maori Students will be awarded each year. The Massey University Scholarships Committee reserves the right to refrain from making an award if applicants are not of sufficient merit.
– The scholarships are open to persons who are enrolled or eligible to enroll full-time for the thesis research component of their Masters degree at Massey University. – The research component must be 90 – 120 credits (this may comprise two research papers studied in consecutive semesters that constitute a single project overall). – A full-time candidate will be expected to work 40 – 50 hours per week on their Masterate qualification. Part-time applicants are not eligible. – Consideration will normally only be given to students with a GPA of 6.5 or better (on a 9 point scale, or 3.4 on a 4 point scale ), or a B+ average or better in graduate level papers.
