This scholarship supports research on the environment by students studying at the University of Canterbury for a Master’s or PhD degree.

It replaces the Sir Neil Isaac Scholarship in Geography/Environmental Science, which had been established in 1987 by the Isaac Wildlife Trust on the Golden Jubilee of the Department of Geography.
