Professorial Fellowship in Monetary Economics

The School of Economics and Finance hosts the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's Professorial Fellowship in Monetary Economics.

Funded through the Victoria University Foundation, this programme aims to enhance the development of monetary policy in New Zealand by inviting specialists of high international repute to visit New Zealand to present research and to stimulate and promote thinking on monetary policy issues.

GS1-sponsored PhD scholarship

Wellington-based, but part of a global organisation, GS1 is a not-for-profit organisation which develops and markets global standards for the identification of goods and services. GS1 sponsors a PhD scholarship, worth $48,000 per annum for up to three years, that researches supply chain traceability management practices in New Zealand.

GS1 CEO Peter Stevens says, "It's all about relationships and this has become a brilliant platform for strengthening those relationships between town and gown".

Recent recipient Dr Melissa Welsh embarked on a three-year project to analyse supply chain traceability management and its economic importance.

The previous scholarship holder was Dr Marta Vos, a School of Information PhD graduate who researched the potential for using RFID and Electronic Product Codes (EPCs) more widely.
