Scholarships for Australians to do postgraduate courses or undertake

research in New Zealand from March 1985 are being offered by the New

Zealand Government under the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan


The Plan, administered in Australia by the Department of Education and

Youth Affairs, provides for reciprocal study in Commonwealth countries.

The scholarships are intended for people of high intellectual promise who

may be expected to contribute significantly to life in Australia on their

return from study in New Zealand.

Applicants must be Australian citizens, graduates of a university or

college of advanced education or have equivalent qualifications, and be

aged not more than 35.

Applicants for Ph. D study should have a minimum standard of upper second

class honours or equivalent and applicants for other courses should have

a minimum standard of a bachelor's degree with at least an average of B ,

or they should expect to achieve these results in coming examinations.

Benefits of the award include return travel to New Zealand; approved

tuition, laboratory and examination fees; maintenance, book, marriage

and child allowances; medical and hospital expenses; assistance with

internal travel and field expenses.

Awards for a two-year postgraduate course will be made to cover two

academic years and the intervening summer. Awards may also be made for

programs with a shorter period of study. Awards for Ph.D study will be

made for two years with provision for an extension of up to one year.


Candidates who have completed a degree with or who have attended an

Australian university should apply through that university. They can

obtain the closing date for applications, information statements and

application forms from the registrar's office of their university.

Only candidates who have never attended an Australian university should

apply to the Department of Education and Youth Affairs by 4 June 1984.

Information and application forms for these applicants can be obtained
