The President of the Resource Management Law Association of New Zealand Incorporated, Dr Philip Mitchell, is pleased to announce that the joint recipients of the Association’s Graduate Scholarship awarded this year are Nicholas John Potter of Victoria University and Catherine Louise Carter of Otago University.

The annual sum available to be awarded this year was $10,000 and due to the high standard of the two winning candidates, it has been shared equally between the two recipients.

Six candidates for the Scholarship reached the final ist and all were of a very high calibre. In the end, after a careful analysis of the applications, and the relevance of the candidates’ proposed courses of study to the objectives of the Association, the selection committee, consisting of Professor Parry, representing the New Zealand Vice Chancellors’ Committee and Helen Atkins and Jim Wiltshire, representing the RMLA, were unanimous in their recommendation that the two candidates referred to above were both clearly well deserving of the award.

The Rules of the Association regarding the scholarship have been revised this year and are now available on this page.
