NZIAHS Postgraduate Award (by nomination)

Purpose: The Postgraduate Award is the third premier award of NZIAHS. This award is to encourage and assist postgraduate research scientists in either the later stages of their PhD or in the first year of a Postdoctoral research position to attend and present their research at an international conference relevant to primary resource science and that will promote agricultural and horticultural science in New Zealand.
