Information

Established in 1990 in memory of the wife of Dr William Evans.  A generous bequest by the late Dr William Evans enabled the University of Otago in 1946 to establish the William Evans fund for the promotion and encouragement of learning and scholarship.

The scholarship may be held by a woman candidate who is eligible to enrol for a doctoral degree, although, in exceptional circumstances, the Scholarship may be held by a Master's candidate.  The purposes of the Scholarship are to encourage postgraduate study and research by women, especially in disciplines in which women are under-represented, and to assist women who have had a career break to return to University for updating or retraining.

Applicants must be:

  • obtaining their first research Master's or Doctoral qualification
  • a domestic student

The Scholarship may be held by a part-time candidate. In such cases tenure and emolument will be on a pro rata basis.

Selection is base predominantly on academic merit and the applicant's potential for research.
