Scholarships available to students at the BHRC

Two scholarships are available to Brain Health Research Centre Postgraduate students.
These scholarships are of invaluable assistance in supporting the excellent research that our Postgraduate students are undertaking.

Roche logoRoche Hanns Möhler Doctoral Scholarship

An award of $10,000 to a Brain Health Research Centre PhD student who is near the completion of their thesis. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a good record of aptitude throughout their PhD, and how their work would benefit from an extension at the end of their existing scholarship.

A condition of the scholarship is that the successful candidate must be able to present their research to Roche in Auckland (travel funded by Roche) at the completion of their thesis.

Applications for the 2018 scholarship are now open. They close at 5pm on Wednesday 1 November.
