    An MA Scholarship is available for a thesis in the 2019 academic year, associated with the ‘Big Data Approach to the Problem of Electoral Turnout’, a Marsden-funded research project, under the supervision of Professor Jack Vowles. Taking a ‘big data’ approach, using marked electoral rolls indicating whether or not the 30,000 people sampled cast a vote, this research maps and seeks to explain stability and change in voting and not voting over two general elections and two local elections. The proposed research will analyse movement between the general and Māori rolls during 2018, using both the matched sample and the entire rolls before and after the change.

    Applications are sought from those who are eligible at the time of application, or who will have become eligible at the start of Trimester 2 the following year, to enrol for a Master’s degree by thesis worth 90 points or more.

    Selection criteria

    * Applicants would normally be expected to have completed a Bachelor’s degree or Honours or Master’s degree Part 1 in political science or an appropriate social science subject demonstrating academic achievement equivalent to a First-Class Honours degree from a New Zealand University.
    * Applicants undertaking a 180-point Master’s degree may be eligible for this scholarship provided that they conduct the research under POLS595 (as a 90-point thesis).
