Ph.D. Scholarship for Wool Textile Studies in New Zealand
Applications are invited for this Post Graduate award from people intending to pursue a career in the wool/textile industry. The priority is on research being undertaken in areas post farm-gate. This award is available on an annual basis for 3 years and a stipend of $25,000 plus tuition fees. A research grant as well as a travel grant to attend an international conference are also provided.
