Antarctica New Zealand recognises the value of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean as a unique environment for scientific research. We are committed to the valuable contribution that Antarctic science can make to the international knowledge base and understanding of Antarctica and global ecosystems and processes. The Postgraduate Research Scholarship Programme is designed to encourage researchers to pursue interests in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. The aim is to support the best new talent to get off to the best possible start in their research careers, focussed on pressing issues in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. New Zealand Post, Antarctica New Zealand and the New Zealand Antarctic Research Institute generously support this scholarship programme.
