Marj Davis Scholarship
This Canterbury scholarship was established in 2018 and is named in commemoration of Marj Davis.
One scholarship may be awarded annually with a maximum value of $1,500. The scholarship is intended to provide financial support to a full-time Masters or PhD student conducting research in ornithology. Eligible research projects must clearly be of benefit to ornithology in New Zealand and to New Zealand birds. Preference will be given to proposals for ornithological research that are expected to contribute to a greater knowledge of birds in the Canterbury/ West Coast region. The scholarship may be applied at the discretion of the successful student to provide financial support for field work, study-related travel, data analysis, reporting and living expenses (or any combination of these). The scholarship will not support attendance at conferences.
Who can apply?
To be eligible, applicants must be studying full-time for a Masters or PhD degree either at Canterbury or Lincoln Universities or at another New Zealand tertiary institution having previously lived in Canterbury/West Coast for a minimum of three years.
