These scholarships provide a means for new talent to enter New Zealand’s Antarctic research community. The scholarships include a stipend and logistics support to conduct or participate in research in Antarctica. The awards are competitive and attract students of a very high calibre.

Antarctica New Zealand Sir Robin Irvine Doctoral Scholarship

This year’s scholarship recognizes the importance of a talented, vibrant, and sustainable research community within New Zealand that is focused on the big questions facing Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, and the relevance of this region for the rest of the planet.

  • For doctoral research
  • Stipend of $20,000 per annum over two years (total of $40,000)
  • Logistics support in Antarctica
