Level of study
The D. G. Bowler Scholarship in Soil Science supports postgraduate students studying soil science.
This scholarship arises from a fund established as a memorial to Dermot G. Bowler, a Massey Agricultural College (later Massey University) staff member from 1946 to 1982.
Value and tenure
The value of the scholarship 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 in a postgraduate degree or postgraduate diploma in soil science administered by the College of Sciences.
The selection criterion is academic merit.
Preference may be given to applicants who have a significant component of soil water management in their postgraduate programme.
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.
Applications close on the 10 March in the year in which the award is to be made. Application forms (ASSC.3) can be downloaded here. Completed applications are to be sent to Dr Kerry Harrington, K.Harrington@massey.ac.nz. Alternatively, hard copy applications can be delivered to Dr Kerry Harrington’s office AH 302.
