Victoria University Scholarships
Many scholarships are available for students at Victoria University, through the Scholarships Office.
The office maintains the Scholarships Database, a comprehensive searchable database listing all available scholarships with criteria, value, tenure and closing dates. Most application forms can be downloaded from this database. For best results when searching the database, keep the search terms broad.
The office also welcomes enquiries from students and staff. Please contact us by email or drop in to 10 Kelburn Parade between 8.00am and 4.30pm.

Wildfire and climate change: examining the paleo record.Project IRN01: This project will investigate the New Zealand literature that reports fire history over the past 150,000 years or so to address the question: Does the New Zealand paleo record of wildfire correspond to climate change?
We plan to fund a PhD to study hydrological effects during a series of recent, major earthquakes in the South Island of New Zealand, for the unique insight they provide on tectonic processes at spatial and temporal scales that are otherwise difficult to study.
