The University of New Zealand is awarding The Edward and Isabel Kidson Scholarship to eligible students for Postgraduate Study at the university.
This scholarship is proudly funded by an income donation made to the UZ by Isabel Maria Kidson back in 1959 to enable a New Zealand university graduate undertake doctoral study in meteorology.
This school provides the opportunity for a graduate of a New Zealand university, who is of good character and who has shown an ability in physics or a combination of physics and mathematics, to undertake further advanced study or research in meteorology, either in New Zealand or elsewhere.
However, if in any year no candidate comes forward to receive a scholarship
award for this subject, then further advanced study or research in another area other than meteorology either in New Zealand or elsewhere in some other branch of science is acceptable.
The scholarship is offered annually as determined by the Universities New Zealand, according to the scholarship prize money budget provided for the purpose.
