Applicants for the 2020 Master of Peace and Conflict Studies (MPCS) programme at the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago, are invited to apply for one of up to three partial scholarships.

Information about the programme can be found at https://www.otago.ac.nz/ncpacs/study/

One award is open to a Māori or Pacific candidate and two 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 masters’ and doctorate programmes; 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 organisations 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.

Entry requirements for the course are a B+ average in the final year of study or relevant practice experience in a related field.  International applicants may need to have English language verification in line with University of Otago requirements:
