Ravensdown Agricultural Research Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 2011 with funds accumulated from rebates on Ravensdown fertilisers bought by Massey University’s farms. The scholarship is funded from interest on this initial capital sum and is supplemented each year by a grant from Ravensdown Ltd.

We're looking for someone who is undertaking a research project relevant to agriculture or horticulture, ideally in soil nutrient management.

This is a postgraduate scholarship. You will be studying towards a PhD or the research component of your masterate programme.

You will want to write a masterate/doctoral thesis in one of these fields:

  • agriculture
  • horticulture.

When choosing our recipient, we will consider your academic achievements and other scholarships or bursaries you hold. Preference may be given to those researching soil nutrient management.

Eligibility

You must:

  • be an enrolled Massey University student
  • be studying in a specific subject area.

Application checklist

Please include the following with your application:

  • your academic transcripts for any tertiary study completed outside of Massey University
  • a statement on how receiving this scholarship would be of benefit to you, and how you believe you meet the intentions of this award. This should include the relevance of your research to soil nutrient management
