    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.

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.

    Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit by the Deep South Challenge Kāhui Māori and  the Science Leader for the Vision Mātauranga science programme.

    How and when do students learn of the decision?

    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. In most cases such a deferment will coincide with a formal suspension from their enrolment in the Master’s degree.

    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.
