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.


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.


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.

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.

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

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.
