The Victoria University of Wellington is offering its John Fitzgerald Memorial Scholarship for students at a undergraduate or graduate level that wish to study at their facilities in New Zealand. The scholarship includes a NZD $5.000 award that aims to help the student with a project or activity in his/her studies. The application deadline is due to October 1, 2016.
This Scholarship is a memorial to the late John Fitzgerald, a graduate (1997) of the Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand) School of Architecture. The architectural firm of Holden + Partners (London, UK), John’s former employer, initiated the Fund from contributions raised in the United Kingdom and New Zealand from architectural and academic colleagues, clients, friends and family. The Scholarship is administered by the Victoria University Foundation.
The purpose of the scholarship is for supporting studies, research, projects, exhibitions or other similar activities relating to the completion of undergraduate or postgraduate qualifications. It is also hoped that the recipient/s of the Memorial Fund Awards will enhance the relationship between New Zealand and the United Kingdom that John Fitzgerald helped to foster.
Fourth and fifth year students, and those doing their Honours, Masters and PhD are eligible and encouraged to apply. No higher degree plan is necessary.
Applications may be submitted by any person or group in their fourth or fifth year of study in architecture (including Honours, Masters and PhD students).
