New scholarship fund launched

New scholarship fund launched

The Riddet Institute has established “The Earle Food Research Fund,” a $1 million scholarship fund to support postgraduate students working on research which contributes to its Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) Research Programme.

The fund is known as “in honour of the contribution to the field made by Massey Professors Emeriti Richard and Mary Earle, who will advise and assist in attracting and mentoring students. Professor Richard Earle was the first Professor of Biotechnology in the world and was also Head of the Department of Process and Environmental Technology and Dean of the Faculty of Technology. He trained as a chemical engineer and in operations research and also worked in the Meat Industry Research Institute of New Zealand. Professor Mary Earle introduced product development courses into the food technology degree, and eventually organised the first four-year degree in product development in New Zealand. She also helped to introduce food technology and product development degrees in five universities in Thailand.

Students can attend any university in New Zealand providing they are supervised by one of the Principal Investigators of the Riddet Institute.

The CoRE Programme covers food materials and structures; gastrointestinal biology; modelling and engineering; and innovative food solutions.
