Graduate Study Awards

The NZAE Education Trust has established awards of up to $500 each for research students in New Zealand.  The awards enable students to participate in the annual conference of the Association.

Awardees have the opportunity to participate in the largest economics conference held in New Zealand, meet with leading scholars visiting the conference and generally participate in the conference.  In addition to the funds, awardees receive free registration to the conference (or a refund if already paid), a dinner at the award ceremony and a one-year membership to the New Zealand Association of Economists.

The Trust will accept applications from students enrolled in New Zealand universities.  Priority will be given to students who are presenting at the conference (poster or paper).

To be considered, students are asked to complete the Graduate Study Awards Form and return it and a copy of their academic record by 8th May 2014.

Important Dates

  • Applications close on 8 May, 2014.
  • Awardees will be notified by 15 May 2014 if they are successful.
