The NZ Apples & Pears Research Fellowship is a prestigious award, intended to encourage post-graduate study in New Zealand and support research that will contribute to the further development of the New Zealand pipfruit industry.
NZ Apples & Pears Research Fellowships are awarded by New Zealand Apples & Pears Inc. on the recommendation of a Fellowship Committee. Awards may be made for study leading to a PhD degree and are tenable for three years. The award may be extended by up to six months to enable a fellow to complete the course of study or research programme.
The NZ Apples & Pears Research Fellowship is primarily for New Zealand students, however some awards may be made to overseas candidates.
