Applications for the Barlow Scholarship are now open. The scholarship provides support to international (including Australian) postgraduate students studying ecology in New Zealand. Funds may be used for direct costs associated with research such as, but not limited to, field costs and analytical expenses, but excluding fees, living expenses and conference costs. Applicants must be enrolled in a New Zealand university for postgraduate study (MSc, PhD or equivalent) in ecology and can apply for up to $2500.
The Barlow Scholarship was made possible by a generous bequest from Nigel Barlow, recipient of the NZ Ecological Society Award (now the Te Tohu Taiao award) in 1986 for his sustained contributions to applied ecology in New Zealand.
