The University of Otago invites scholarship application for postgraduate studies in Theater in New Zealand. Established by the University Council in association with the Guardian Trust in 2011 to provide support for Theatre Studies students to pursue postgraduate study. The scholarship was made possible by a generous endowment from the late Mrs. Eleanor Wright, to honor the memory of her daughter Noni Wright, who was well known in drama circles and had appeared on programs for the BBC.

Moreover, the scholarship is paid in installments across the course of the year.
