dairy farm production
Level of study
The Taranaki Dairy Farmers Conference Scholarship encourages interest and research in dairy farm production in New Zealand.
This scholarship arises from a fund established by the Organising Committee for the Massey University Dairy Farmers Conference held in Taranaki in 1989.
Value and tenure
The value of the scholarship is determined each year from the interest earned on the capital.
The scholarship is usually offered 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:
•normally resident in New Zealand
•enrolled full time for a master’s degree or postgraduate diploma in Applied Academic Programme disciplines relevant to agriculture (prefix of 111, 112, 117, 119, 138, 171, 189, 238 or 283) at Massey University.
Applicants’ courses must include a strong interest in an aspect of dairy farm production in New Zealand.
The selection criteria are academic merit and the expectation the recipient will pursue a career relevant to the dairy industry.
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.
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.
