Frank and Doris Bateson Memorial Graduate Scholarship

Mr Bateson was a driving force in New Zealand astronomy, and was responsible for setting up New Zealand’s only professional astronomical research observatories. He is regarded as the father of astronomy in New Zealand. The purpose of this scholarship is to support research postgraduate students in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Canterbury. The scholarship process is managed by the University of Canterbury.
Applicants must be enrolled full-time or part-time in either a Master of Science (MSc) Part II, or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme in Astronomy or Astrophysics at the University of Canterbury
