The HOPE-SELWYN Foundation Scholarships are intended to support scientists in the early stages of their careers conducting research into ageing. The name of the scholarships recognises the partnership between The HOPE Foundation for Research on Ageing and The Selwyn Foundation. The HOPE Foundation for Research on Ageing is a non-Government funded Charitable Trust established to prepare New Zealand for an ageing future. The mission of the HOPE Foundation is to:
– Lead and resource the funding of people doing research on ageing
– Disseminate research-based information about the effects of ageing on individuals and society
– Develop the pool of researchers in New Zealand
– Influence decision-makers to improve the quality of life for ageing New Zealanders.
The Selwyn Foundation is an independent charitable trust and one of the largest charitable providers of care to older people in New Zealand. Both Foundations seek to encourage research into ageing phenomena both individual and societal, because they believe that as the nation ages, many issues will arise that will have to be addressed in order to assist New Zealand Society to cope with the effects of the ageing population. In this way the Foundations seek to help prepare New Zealand for an ageing future.

This Scholarship for research into postgraduate aging will be offered for study at AUT in the year following application and will be funded by the HOPE and Selwyn Foundations.

Selection criteria:

  • All applicants for these scholarships must:
  • -Be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents
  • -Be enrolled and have paid the fees, or arranged to pay the fees, for a full-time or part-time master’s thesis/dissertation, or doctoral thesis at AUT University on a topic related to ageing. Applications will be accepted from a wide range of disciplines in line with the HOPE Foundation’s philosophy of encouraging eclectic research into ageing and its effects on individuals and society.

-the perceived relevance of the research to the ageing population and the overall goals of The HOPE Foundation, and
-the academic merit of the applicant. Academic merit will be measured on the grade point average assessed over the applicant’s two most recent years of equivalent full-time study.

If the Committee in any year considers applicants are not of sufficient merit the scholarship will not be awarded.

History or background of award

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.

Purpose of award

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. This will either be Part 2 of a two-year, 180 point Master of Political Science (MPols) degree (course code POLS595, 90 points) or a 120 point Master of Arts (MA) thesis in Political Science (course code POLS591).

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).
* Scholarships will be awarded solely on the basis of academic merit.
* The research will require a willingness to engage with and analyse data, using various methods of quantitative analysis and experience in using statistical methods will be an advantage. Assistance in learning such skills, if required, will be available from the project research assistant in the first half of the year, and throughout from the supervisor.

How and when do students learn of the decision?

Once the Selection Committee has made a decision applicants will be notified by email of their results, and any feedback from the Committee. The scholarship will be paid in monthly instalments following completion of a 6-monthly progress report by the student.

Scholarship recipients will be expected to sign a Postgraduate Scholarship Contract.

Once the period of tenure of a scholarship has commenced, the Scholarships Committee may, at its sole discretion, grant a scholarship recipient a deferment of their scholarship for a period of up-to six months.

A scholarship shall be terminated and the corresponding proportion of the scholarship emolument forfeited, if a scholarship recipient ceases to resume the aforesaid programme of research or advanced study within one month of the last day of the period of deferment.

Scholarship recipients shall be required to devote themselves full-time to their programme of research during the tenure of the scholarship and may not hold a position of employment without the approval of the Scholarships Committee. Approval may be given for scholarship recipients to undertake paid employment (usually tutoring) for up to a maximum of 600 hours in one calendar year.

Each scholarship recipient and his/her principal supervisor shall provide a quarterly progress report to the Scholarships Office six months after the commencement of the scholarship. Where progress is not satisfactory, the matter will be referred to the Scholarships Committee.

The Scholarships Committee may at any time suspend or terminate a scholarship, if the scholarship recipient is not diligently pursuing their programme of research, has violated the University Statute on Conduct, or has failed to comply with any of the terms and conditions on which the scholarship was awarded.
