Graduate Women NZ Grant $80k In Scholarships
Over $81,000 has been awarded by Graduate Women NZ for 12 scholarship winners to further their studies in 2021. From 115 applicants, these awardees were selected for their academic excellence, commitment to cutting-edge research and to meeting the goals of GWNZ. The successful candidates are engaged in courses ranging from Masters to PhD level research in areas including humanities, technology, education, psychology, environmental planning, healthcare, music and gender. All 12 awardees accepted their scholarships and joined the awardee network and relevant GWNZ branch or independent member network. Granted annually, these generous scholarships are made possible by the voluntary work of GWNZ’s members as well as legacy bequests and donations.
