The scholarship was established in memory of Dr Sarah Beanland who died tragically in a tramping accident in June 1996. In her abbreviated career, Sarah's enthusiasm, commitment and intellectual ability was an inspiration to all who knew her. She demonstrated superb skills and enthusiasm for integrating geology and geophysics to address problems in neotectonics. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage students to study for a PhD in the areas of earth, physical, biological and social sciences.
Applicants must be enrolled in a PhD course at any New Zealand university involving the presentation of a thesis and conduct research in a field of science of interest to GNS Science and of relevance to New Zealand. Selection is based on: excellence in achievements to date; proposed research; likelihood of making a significant contribution to research of relevance to New Zealand in fields covered by GNS Science; and promotion of collaboration research between a New Zealand university and GNS Science.
The scholarship provides a stipend of NZ$26,000, remuneration of university fees up to NZ$7,000, and expenses up to NZ$4,000 per year for 3 years.
