Special Eligibility Requirements:

Applicants must be female.

Normally applicants must either:
  1. have graduated with a degree from the University of Canterbury; or
  2. be completing a programme for a degree that would qualify them, in the year of application for the scholarship, to graduate from the University of Canterbury.
The scholarship is tenable by full-time students engaged in study for a research doctoral degree at a university in Europe. Preference is given to those who will be studying at the University of Cambridge, the University of London, or the University of Oxford.

An applicant must have completed an appropriate qualification at a level judged to be equivalent to a Bachelor's or Master's degree with First-Class Honours at the University of Canterbury (equivalent to a UC GPA of at least 7.0).

Selection will be based on:
  1. academic achievement; and
  2. ability to pursue research.
If, in any year that the scholarship is available, there is no candidate of sufficient merit, the scholarship is readvertised as soon as practicable and applications are accepted from women who:
  1. have graduated with a degree from any New Zealand university; or
  2. are completing a programme for a degree that would qualify them, in the year of the original closing date for that application round, to graduate from a New Zealand university.
If, after the scholarship has been readvertised, there is still no candidate of sufficient merit, no award is made and the scholarship is made available in the following November.

Normally, there may be only one holder at a time, however, if funds become available because of late commencement of scholarship tenure by a recipient, applications may be opened to allow simultaneous tenure by another student.

Additional Information:

The scholarship was founded in 1925 by Mrs Clara Lister Gabbat (wife of John Percy Gabbat, Professor of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy at Canterbury College of the University of New Zealand from 1908 to 1922), in memory of her father, Sir William Pickles Hartley, 1846–1922.
