Student Projects

The BPA is offering both undergraduate and graduate (Masters and PhDs) programmes to support its mission. Eight undergraduate internships are available annually to summer students. Four graduate scholarships aimed at Masters students are also available on an annual basis. Funding for postgraduate programmes includes a stipend, student fees and a contribution towards direct costs. *Please note that at this stage, there will no longer be open calls for BPA funded PhDs and Masters projects.  We recommend approaching Callaghan Innovation’s investment arm about funding these particular projects: https://www.callaghaninnovation.govt.nz/student-grants/rd-fellowship-grants or contacting the BPA to discuss alternative ways of funding projects.
