Jack Pearce Research Scholarship Description :

The Jack Pearce Research Scholarship is in memory of Jack Pearce (1911 – 1994) who wanted to go to university but was unable to do so as a young man.

University education was rare in those days, there were no grants and his father probably reasoned that as he and his five brothers had all achieved success in life with only a secondary education further education was unnecessary for his son.

The Research Scholarship named in Jack Pearce’s memory is being established by Jack’s daughter, Brenda Joyce.

As a result of this Jack Pearce Scholarship, many young people will have opportunities for further education that Brenda and her father Jack would have cherished.

The Jack Pearce Research Scholarship shall be awarded annually to a full – time Masters by thesis or PhD candidate undertaking research in New Zealand or English History.

Students who are intending to transfer to Victoria University from other universities are eligible to apply. The scholarship will be made primarily on the basis of academic merit and the ability of the University to supervise the proposed research.

Where there is a difficulty in distinguishing between applicants financial need may be taken into account. If no suitable applicant is available in any one year, the scholarship will not be awarded and the funds will be re – invested.

Scholarship Application Deadline : Sunday 31st October 2010.
