- Recipients of University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarships are normally required to be enrolled on a full-time basis. However, domestic students for whom socially compelling reasons make part-time enrolment preferable may apply to hold a scholarship on a part-time basis pro-rated. Socially compelling reasons include a) carer responsibilities for: pre-school and/or school-aged children; an invalid or disabled family / whanau member; or b) medical condition(s), impairment(s) or disabilities. Applicants will not be granted permission to hold a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship on a part-time basis if they wish to undertake full-time paid employment or substantial part-time employment. Students who hold a scholarship on a part-time basis are subject to the same employment restrictions as full-time scholarship holders (i.e. 500 hours per scholarship year; Refer Regulation 10 and Notes xiii and xvi) and are required to change to full-time enrolment if a change in their circumstances means they no longer qualify to hold the scholarship on a part-time basis.
- Students are required to either a) enrol and begin their studies within 3 months or 6 months of the date of offer for domestic and international students respectively or b) in exceptional circumstances, to have obtained approval from their faculty for a delayed take up time. The latest possible date for enrolment is 1 December in the year of the award.
- The Scholarship will not cover any bridging programmes.
- Students who are offered and decline a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship are eligible to apply again at a later date provided they have not held some other doctoral scholarship in the interim. Students who have commenced payment for a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship are not eligible to apply again.
- A student who has previously terminated a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship for health reasons may re-apply to receive the remaining balance of the scholarship, up to the maximum allowable tenure.
- Students who have already commenced payment may defer their University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship funding for up to one year during their tenure of the scholarship provided they do not hold some other doctoral scholarship in the interim.
- Scholars who have upgraded from a masters to a doctoral degree and a) who were enrolled on a part-time basis during their masters degree, will have the tenure of their doctoral scholarship adjusted to account for the masters degree enrolment period on a full-time equivalent basis, and b) who were previously in payment of a university funded Masters/Honours/PG Dip Scholarship, will commence payment for their University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship from the date specified by the Scholarships Sub-Committee.
- The maximum combined period of scholarship tenure for students who a) transfer from one university-funded doctoral scholarship to another, or b) terminate one doctoral degree and commence another, or c) have completed one doctoral degree and return to commence a second, shall be a total of up to 36 months with a possible extension of up to six further months, provided Regulations 7 and 8 are met. Where a Masters student is approved to upgrade their partially completed degree to doctoral study and is subsequently awarded a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship, the tenure of the Scholarship will be up to 36 months from the start date of a one-year Masters degree, or from the completion of the coursework component for a two-year Masters degree.
- (xii) A further six months scholarship funding, provided by the University of Auckland and subject to Scholarships Sub-Committee approval, may be available to those who have held an approved doctoral scholarship provided the applicant has a first class academic record.

The University of Auckland may, in the event it can be established that a recipient of a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship is not complying with these regulations, terminate the Scholarship and require repayment of the funds received from the date of the breach.
- To ensure equity and compliance with scholarship provisions, Graduate Teaching Assistant appointments are co-ordinated with scholarship receipt. In the event of award after the appointment date, the appointee MUST inform the Head of Department and the Scholarship Office. All Scholars must comply with Regulation 10.
- Paid work that is required as part of an approved doctoral programme (such as an internship for some named doctorates), is not counted towards the 500 hours of additional and paid work that a Scholar may undertake while in receipt of a scholarship.
- DClinPsy students enrolled in the DClinPsy internship year may apply to the Scholarships Office for a stipend. If they provide evidence to the Scholarships Office that their net internship salary is less than the value of the University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship they will receive a stipend to bring their income up to the value of the scholarship.
