The scholarship is available for candidates enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program in mechanical engineering.
The scholarship value for candidates enrolled in the part-time course will be evaluated as two-third of the value given to a candidate enrolled in a full-time course. Furthermore, the duration of the scholarship also varies. The duration of the scholarship for a part-time student will be calculated as 1.5 times the number of months that a full-time student would receive.
For candidates enrolled in a master’s degree, the scholarship is tenable up to 120 points and for those studying doctoral programs, the award is tenable up to 360 points. The scholarship will be paid pro-rata if the candidate is enrolled in a course of fewer than 120 points in one academic year.
The scholarship amount will be paid on a monthly basis and will be credited to the candidate’s nominated New Zealand bank account. Nonetheless, the amount will be received only after acceptance of the offer letter and confirmation of enrolment in a relevant course at the University of Canterbury.
