Scholarships for Doctoral and Master's study at the University of Otago can be applied for at any time during the year.

Please note that due to continuous awarding processes and variability in the commencement of an applicant's academic programme, an advertised scholarship may not necessarily be available at time of application. Please contact the Scholarships Office to confirm the availability of a specific scholarship.

Doctoral Scholarships

Applications for doctoral scholarships should usually occur when applying for admission. Applications for this scholarship are made online through the eVision portal. Once you have applied for admission to your programme you will receive an alert in your student portal inviting you to apply for a scholarship. It is also possible to apply for a scholarship after being admitted.

The main doctoral scholarship, open to both international and domestic applicants, is the University of Otago Doctoral Scholarship. In addition there are particular scholarships for Māori and Pacific Island applicants, as well as a number of specialised discipline-specific scholarships.

DClinDent Applicants

Invitations to apply for the University of Otago Doctoral Research Scholarship will be sent out via eVision once admission to the DClinDent programme has been confirmed, usually in October of the year of application. A decision regarding the scholarship application will be made in late November or December in the same year. If you are a second year student who has completed the papers year of the DClinDent programme, please contact the Scholarships Office to request an invite. If you are student who wishes to reapply for scholarship funding in your third year please contact the Scholarships Office  for details regarding making a reapplication. Please note for all reapplications you will need to have new evidence to strengthen your previous application.

Research Master's Scholarships

Research Master’s scholarships support students during the thesis part of a research Master’s degree; pre-thesis papers are not covered by these scholarships.

Domestic Applicants

The main research Master’s scholarship is the University of Otago Master’s Scholarship. In addition there are particular scholarships for Māori and Pacific Island applicants, as well as a number of specialised discipline-specific scholarships.

MDiet Applicants

Invitations to apply for the University of Otago Masters Scholarship will be sent once you have completed your application for admission to the programme. Applications will be assessed in July of the first year of your qualification once your semester one grades are available.

International Applicants

There are four University of Otago International Master’s Scholarships available per year; one per teaching Division. Due to the limited number of these scholarships, applicants require very good grades to be successful. We only recommend applying if your grades in the later years of your degree are at A or A+ level.

International Master's Scholarships are currently available in each Division for candidates planning to start within the time frames specified below. Note that these dates can change based on submission or withdrawal of current candidates. Please check back often.

 Coursework Master's Scholarships

 

The University of Otago Coursework Master’s Scholarship is open to both domestic and international applicants, and is for students studying Master’s degrees which don’t include a full thesis component (although they may include a research report or dissertation).

Some degrees also have a thesis or non-thesis option (usually with the decision made after an initial year of study). In such cases the non-thesis option is eligible for coursework Master’s scholarship support. Note that coursework Master’s scholarships are not available to research master’s students completing a papers year prior to beginning their thesis.

Due to the limited numbers University of Otago Coursework Masters Scholarships (20), application invitations are restricted by a nomination system. Once a student has been admitted to their programme of choice, the department will assess their suitability for scholarship funding and advise the Scholarships Office that they wish to nominate a candidate for this Coursework Masters Scholarship. The Scholarship Office will then send an invite to the candidate via eVision. Please note that due to the competitive nature of this scholarship candidates who will likely be nominated for this scholarship will usually need to have a GPA of at least an A on their most recent year of study. A decision regarding these scholarships will be made by the month preceding commencement of the programme of study.
