Level of Study
The Lois Turnbull Postgraduate Scholarship was established in 2013 to assist female New Zealand students to obtain a postgraduate education in agriculture or horticulture. It was set up with funds provided by Dr Lois V Turnbull, a former agriculture student of Massey University, who was encouraged to undertake postgraduate studies as a result of receiving scholarship support herself.

The value of the scholarship will be up to $10,000.
The scholarship monies shall be paid in two equal instalments. The scholarship is tenable for one year.
At the discretion of the University all, or part, of the annual interest may be reinvested in order to maintain the value of the capital fund or the value of the award for subsequent years.
