Scholarship Info

This scholarship was established in 2004 and is financed by the Auckland Medical Aid Trust to encourage research into social issues concerning being and becoming human, and provides funds for a doctoral candidate at a New Zealand university.

This scholarship provides funds for individuals to undertake research towards a doctoral degree at a New Zealand university.   In New Zealand there are debates around a number of issues that impact on the field of human reproduction — social, medical and technological. This scholarship is designed to further that debate by promoting discussion of the cultural, ethical, legal, and spiritual topics surrounding it.
