Applications open: University of Auckland Marsden Grant Masters Scholarship in the Sociology of Energy and Environment

This Scholarship was established in 2018 and is funded by a Marsden Grant awarded to an academic staff member from the School of Social Sciences in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Auckland.

The main purpose of the Scholarship is to encourage and support a Masters student in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Auckland to undertake research that advances our understanding of energy systems as social systems, embedded in entire ways of life. The Marsden researchers are interested in the Christchurch rebuild following the earthquakes: How do we build back better? Can energy systems help us transition to a more robust, future-proof and sustainable society? The research will also detail Indigenous modes of energy provision and Indigenous notions of sustainability.
