Level of study
The Bailey Bequest Bursary supports students who suffer general hardship or unforeseen changes in their financial circumstances during the course of their postgraduate programme of study.
These bursaries were established by Massey University from funds provided by the Bailey Bequest. Walter Henry Bailey was a retired farmer from Wellington. He died in 1928.
Value and tenure
The annual value of the bursary is up to $3000 and is awarded as funds permit.
The money is paid in one instalment.
A bursary may be held only once.
Typical number on offer
Five bursaries are typically offered each year.
Applicants must be part-time or full-time students of Massey University who are enrolled internally or by distance for a postgraduate programme at any of the Massey University campuses.
The selection criterion is evidence of hardship. Applications must be supported by a supervisor, head of department or other academic mentor who is familiar with the applicant's circumstances.
The bursary is awarded by the University Scholarships Committee. It 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 normally for general hardship on 21 April each year. Students whose circumstances change unforeseeably may, however, make an application for this bursary at any time.
