New Zealand is currently debating a number of issues that impact on the field of human reproduction - social, medical and technological. This Scholarship is designed to further that debate by promoting discussion of the cultural, ethical, legal, and spiritual issues arising from such issues.
The Selection Committee will consider projects that intersect with these debates from a number of disciplines across the arts and humanities including, but not limited to, bioethics, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, Māori studies, education, religion and law.
Applicants will be registered as a candidate or will be in the process of applying for registration as a candidate for a doctoral degree at a New Zealand university.
Scholars will be residing in New Zealand for the duration of their degree.
The scholarship will be for up to $25,000 per annum.
The scholarship will be awarded for one year but may be extended to a maximum of three years, provided that satisfactory progress is maintained.
The Trust are keen to allocate funds as broadly as possible. Applications are welcome from all eligible candidates, including those who already have funding from a university doctoral scholarship.
