Scholarship available for a Master’s by thesis in Psychology

The Sustainable Seas Challenge is offering a year-long masters scholarship for a talented psychology student.


The successful student will be working on a research project assessing the value/risk of re-use of offshore Infrastructure and platforms to communities. In particular, the student will investigate whether in situ marine infrastructures have the potential to bring value to the Taranaki community where offshore structures are currently in place, and whether there is potential to “value-add” during decommissioning. For example, do these structures have potential to provide protection and enhancement of particular in-shore fishery resources or present tourism opportunities?

For selection criteria and information on how to apply please visit the Victoria University website.
