    Master of Peace and Conflict Studies Study Awards 2018
    National Centre for Peace & Conflict Studies, University of Otago, Dunedin, NZ

    Applicants for the 2018 Master of Peace and Conflicts Studies (MPCS) programme at the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago, are invited for apply for one of up to five study awards. Information about the programme can be found at

    One award is open to a Maori or Pacifica candidate and four awards will be open to all applicants, domestic and international. These awards will be equivalent to the Coursework Masters scholarships offered by the University of Otago ($10,000 NZD).

    The NCPACS is New Zealand’s first centre to combine global cross-disciplinary expertise on the issues of non-violence, development, peacebuilding and conflict transformation. It offers postgraduate programs at the Masters and PhD level; conducts high-level research on the causes of violent conflict and the conditions for sustainable peace, and provides training, evaluation expertise, and expert advice to government and non-governmental organizations engaged in humanitarian intervention, conflict resolution and peacebuilding. It is a postgraduate theory, research and practice centre, located within the Division of Humanities. Our aim is to provide the most advanced theoretical insight into the origins and management of violent conflict as well as skills for dealing with that in their future academic or practical work. Our regional foci are Aotearoa –New Zealand, Oceania, East, South East and South Asia.

    As the awards are likely to be highly competitive, applicants should have an A average or above. The Head of Department may exercise some discretion on grades where applicants have special needs or have done practice work in conflict environments.

    Applications close 24 November 2017. Applicants are advised to begin the enrollment procedure concurrent with the study award application to ensure that study can begin in Semester 1, 2018.

    If you are interested in applying please send an up-to-date curriculum vitae, academic record, and contact details of two academic referees to:
