Opportunities for work projects and working conditions
There are a wide range of opportunities for fellows in the secretariat. Work projects may be carried out in any of the secretariat programmes on a number of issues e.g.. future of climate change, technology, financial assistance, inventories, mechanisms, etc…

The exact work programme to be pursued will be determined in consultation with each fellow according to her/his own area of expertise and interest. Once the work programme is determined, the selected fellow will be placed in the relevant secretariat programme, under the supervision/guidance of a programme officer designated by the hosting programme.

Fellows are expected to prepare an analytical paper of 20 - 30 pages containing the results of their work at the end of the fellowship period. The paper should be prepared in English to the extent possible, but may also be submitted in French or Spanish. In special cases, the paper may be prepared in one of the other official languages of the UN (Arabic, Chinese, or Russian). The paper will be reviewed by secretariat staff and the secretariat will maintain publication rights.

Conditions
The fellowship programme annually awards up to five fellowships.

* Fellowships are awarded for a period of three to six months.
* Fellowships shall normally begin within six months after the award being offered.
* Fellowship periods will be individually arranged to accommodate, to the extent possible, the particular needs of each fellow.

    New Zealand:Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Prince of Wales Scholarship

    The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust offers several prestigious awards each year to enable graduates of high academic ability to study at Cambridge University in Britain.

    Eligibility


    These scholarships shall be known as the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Prince of Wales’ Scholarships for New Zealand and shall be open to graduates who are New Zealand citizens and who wish to pursue a course of research leading to the degree of PhD at Cambridge University. The scholarships shall be awarded by the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust, following nomination by the NZVCC Scholarships Committee.

    The scholarship shall normally be taken up in the British academic year starting October in the year after application is made.

    Tenure

    The award will be tenable for a maximum tenure of three years.

    The tenure of the scholarship will be dependent upon the admission to Cambridge of the scholar by Cambridge University and College authorities. The decision of the Board of Graduate Studies about admission will be communicated as soon as possible and usually by June in any year.

    If at any time the Board of Graduate Studies considers that a scholar is not making satisfactory progress, it shall forward a report on the work of that scholar to the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and NZVCC, which report may, if the Board of Graduate Studies thinks fit, include a recommendation that the scholarship be suspended or terminated.

    The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and the NZVCC may at any time suspend or terminate any scholarship, if they are satisfied that the scholar is not diligently pursuing the programme of research or advanced study or has failed to comply with any of the terms and conditions on which the scholarship was awarded; and a scholarship shall be terminated and no further payments shall be made if a scholar ceases to pursue the aforesaid programme.

    Applications


    Every person who wishes to be considered for a Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Prince of Wales’ Scholarship for New Zealand shall apply to NZVCC (via their university Scholarships Office) on the prescribed form by the first day in October in the year preceding that in which the award is to be taken up. Every application shall be accompanied by a detailed statement of the candidate’s proposed programme of research or advanced study.

    Each candidate that applies for a Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Prince of Wales’ Scholarship will also be required to:

    apply for admission to Cambridge on a Graduate Application Form by the dates specified by the Board of Graduate Studies (15 October);

    apply for an ORS award (offered by Cambridge to candidates of outstanding academic merit and research potential) by the dates specified by the Board of Graduate Studies (15 December);

    complete and return to the Board of Graduate Studies, a completed Cambridge Trusts’ Scholarship Application Form by 15 December.

    Co-tenure with ORS Award

    It should be noted that a Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Prince of Wales’ Scholarship may be held in conjunction with an ORS (Overseas Research Student) Award. ORS Awards pay the difference between the University Composition Fee at the home rate and the University Composition Fee at the overseas rate.

    Value
    The scholarship will pay the University Composition Fee at the home rate (subject to the applicant being successful in winning an ORS award or an ORS Equivalent award offered by Cambridge which will meet the difference between the higher overseas and lower home rate of the University Composition Fee), and approved College fees.

    A maintenance allowance will be means-tested, taking into account any other part-cost awards which the applicant wins and also whatever modest contribution can be made from their own personal or family resources.

    The value of the scholarship will be determined in the light of the financial circumstances of the applicant.

    Application Deadline 01/10/2010

    New Zealand:HOPE Foundation Scholarships in Ageing Research 2010

    These Scholarships, established in 2003, are to support scientists in the early stages of their careers conducting research into ageing. The HOPE Foundation wishes to encourage more research into ageing phenomena both individual and societal, because it believes that as the nation ages, the issues to be addressed in order to cope with the effects of an ageing population will be widespread throughout New Zealand society.


    Title

    The Scholarship shall be known as the HOPE Foundation Scholarships in Ageing Research.

    Tenure and Value

    One Scholarship of $4,000 will be awarded annually, for a period of one year, and may be renewable for up to three years.

    Eligibility


    Candidates must:
    “be enrolled or be intending to enrol full-time for a Masters or Doctoral thesis at Massey University in a topic related to ageing.
    “be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.
    Applications will be accepted from a wide range of disciplines in line with the HOPE Foundation’s philosophy of encouraging eclectic research into ageing and its effects on individuals and society.

    Criteria
    The Scholarship shall be awarded on the basis of academic merit and the quality of the research proposal.

    Responsibility for the Award
    The Scholarship shall be awarded by the University Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of the HOPE Foundation Selection Committee.

    Payment
    The emolument will be paid in two equal instalments on confirmation of enrolment in semester one in April and semester two in August.

    Conditions
    Scholarship recipients may hold other awards at the same time as the HOPE Foundation Scholarship in Ageing Research.

    Recipients will be expected to acknowledge the HOPE Foundation’s support in any publication, monograph, report or presentation that results from the research.

    The HOPE Foundation will not restrict the publication of research results by the recipient of a scholarship or his/her research team. However, from time to time, in order to enhance its own public profile as a research-supporting entity, the HOPE Foundation will seek to negotiate with research teams the publication of reports on research progress and/or outcomes in some agreed form on its web site and in its printed communications.

    The Scholarships Committee, in consultation with the HOPE Foundation has the power to terminate or suspend a Scholarship, if it receives an unsatisfactory report on the progress of a Scholar from the Head of Academic Unit in which the recipient is enrolled.

    The Selection Committee is not obligated to make an award if in any year there are no candidates of sufficient merit.

    The Scholarships Committee has the power to amend or vary these Regulations, in consultation with the HOPE Foundation, provided there is no departure from the main purpose of the Scholarships.
