Level of study
The C. V. Fife Memorial Scholarship supports postgraduate soil science students.
This scholarship arises from a fund established in memory of Dr Cliff V. Fife. He was a member of the Department of Soils and Field Husbandry from 1934 to 1961 and the first Head of the Department of Soil Science from 1961 to 1972.
Value and tenure
The value is determined each year from the interest earned on the capital.
The scholarship is usually awarded annually and the tenure is for a single academic year.
At the discretion of the University all, or part, of the annual interest may be reinvested to maintain the value of the capital fund so the scholarship may not be granted each and every year.
Typical number on offer
One scholarship is typically offered each year.
Applicants must be:
•enrolled full time for a postgraduate degree or postgraduate diploma in soil science at Massey University
•New Zealand citizens.
Selection is based on academic merit, in particular the grades obtained in soil science and/or earth science papers completed at undergraduate level.
The University Scholarships Committee may take account of other scholarships and bursaries held by the applicants in seeking an equitable distribution of funds.
The scholarship is awarded by the University Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of the Applied Academic Programmes Scholarships Committee and the Leader of the Soil Science Group.
The University Scholarships Committee has the right to refrain from making an award if there are no suitable applicants and its decision is final.
Conditions of the scholarship
The scholarship may be held in conjunction with other scholarships, bursaries or awards, so long as those scholarships, bursaries or awards permit co-tenure.
The closing date for applications is 10 March. Incomplete or late applications are not accepted.
Application cannot be accepted before 10/12/2018.
