New Zealand: PhD Award in Economics, University of Ottago Department of Economics Postgraduate Award Eligibility

Anyone who is accepted to do a full-time PhD in the Department of Economics at the University of Otago is eligible to apply for the postgraduate award. It is permissible to apply for the award in anticipation of being accepted as a PhD student. Note that the process of applying for the scholarship is separate to the process of applying to be accepted as a PhD student.

For New Zealand students (and students who qualify for New Zealand fees*) the award is worth NZ$15,000 annually towards living costs. In addition, the award will cover the cost of fees. (Note: the award will not cover the cost of fees for any taught papers taken by the student, even if taking the papers is a condition of being accepted to do a PhD.)

The award will be made in equal payments at the end of each month. The first payment will be made at the end of the month in which the candidate enrols.

* From January 2006 International PhD Students who have a suitably qualified supervisor will qualify for New Zealand fees.

Application Process

Applications will be considered twice each year, with applications closing at the end of April and end of November. Anyone interested in the award should apply in writing to the Director of Graduate Studies (Ian King) in the Department of Economics (not the University's Scholarships Office). Applications by email are encouraged. To email Ian: iking@business.otago.ac.nz


The award is tenable for three years, or until the thesis is submitted, whichever is the sooner. However, payment of the award in the second and third years is subject to satisfactory progress being made.

It is a requirement of the award that the student be based in Dunedin, unless the thesis requires an approved period of field work. Prolonged absence from Dunedin will result in the award being terminated.

If an award holder transfers from full-time to part-time status, he/she will become ineligible for any further payments.


The award will be made on the basis of academic merit.

Additional Income

The award cannot be held concurrently with any other postgraduate scholarship or award, worth more than half the annual emolument of the Department of Economics Postgraduate Award. Research grants, travel grants, and any grants specifically designated to cover research costs, for which the candidate must produce receipts, are not considered to be awards in this instance.

There is no specific limit on any other form of income, provided that the student is able to pursue full time study and make satisfactory progress on the thesis.
