If you are a postgraduate student funded by a New Zealand Scholarship, you can get a contribution towards some of the costs of your thesis and research.
Postgraduate research allowance
If you are carrying out research which is a mandatory component of your qualification, and worth at least 90 credits, you can apply for up to $1000 towards research costs. You will apply for this in conjunction with your home-located research plan.
Postgraduate thesis allowance
The thesis allowance, for New Zealand Scholars only, is a contribution towards the cost of proofreading, printing and binding your Master’s or PhD research thesis—it may not necessarily cover all related expenses.
New Zealand Scholarship Master’s students
You can get:
- Up to $150 towards your printing and binding costs, paid to you with receipt of actual costs.
- Up to 21 hours of proofreading.
New Zealand Scholarship PhD students
You can get:
- Up to $330 towards your printing and binding costs, paid to you with receipt of actual costs.
- Up to 33 hours of proofreading.
Applying for the allowance
To request your one-off allowance for printing and binding or to request proofreading, contact your International Student Officer (ISO) with a quote or your receipt.
