University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarships

The University will be awarding 200 University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarships to high-achieving doctoral candidates applying for admission to an approved doctoral programme1 at the University of Auckland for 2017. Scholarships are guaranteed for all ‘straight-A’ students, provided their most recent qualifying programme was completed at a New Zealand university2.
Students can be considered for a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship only at the time of application for a place in the programme.

University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship:


Doctoral stipends are increasing for 2017 to $27,300 p.a. (plus domestic fees), with the possibility of a six-month extension. There will be an annual cost-of-living adjustment to the doctoral stipend.

New doctoral applicants with a grade point average (GPA) of 8.0 or above, from their most recent qualifying programme, will be guaranteed a scholarship provided the qualifying programme was completed at a New Zealand university.

New Māori and domestic3 Pacific doctoral applicants with a GPA of 7.5 or above, from their most recent qualifying programme, will be guaranteed a scholarship provided the qualifying programme was completed at a New Zealand university.

1. A PhD, DClinPsy or the research component of an approved doctorate.

2. There are eight universities in New Zealand: University of Auckland, AUT, University of Canterbury, Lincoln University, Massey University, University of Otago, University of Waikato, Victoria University of Wellington.

3. Citizens or permanent residents of New Zealand.

Outstanding new doctoral applicants who completed their most recent qualifying programme for doctoral study at an overseas institution will be considered for a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship based on performance in the qualifying programme (including the standing of the awarding institution).

Other new doctoral applicants may be considered for a scholarship at the discretion of the Faculty Dean, provided they have a GPA/E of no less than 7.00 in the programme that qualifies them for doctoral study or are being considered for doctoral admission on the basis of an exceptional research record.

The number of scholarships available across the University through the discretion of Faculty Deans is very limited, and the Faculty Dean may choose not to exercise this discretion in any given year. All University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarships are awarded at the time of offer of place only.

Please consult the University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship regulations for full eligibility and selection criteria.

Candidates who are not successful in securing a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship are encouraged to apply for other scholarships offered by both the University and generous donors and organisations. You can find a list of these on the Scholarships website.
