Claude McCarthy Fellowship

Description

Claude McCarthy Fellowships (Category A) are available to candidates who are graduates of a New Zealand university and who are enrolled in a PhD programme at a New Zealand university. The purpose is to enable graduates of a New Zealand university, who are registered and enrolled for a doctoral degree at a New Zealand university, to travel overseas for short periods to present research work at conferences and/or conduct research leading towards the New Zealand doctoral degree for which they are enrolled. The fellowships are to support the undertaking of "original work or research in literature, science or medicine". (The words literature, science or medicine will be interpreted liberally.)

There are two application periods per year; refer to the Universities New Zealand website (below) for details.

The funds for these fellowships are provided by the income from a substantial bequest by the late Claude McCarthy.
