This scholarship is intended to encourage enrollment in Master’s programs in both Chemistry and Music, which may involve components including travel within the United States or to other countries.

Bequeathed by Dr. Joan Mattingley, who received her doctorate in biological chemistry in 1977, the scholarship was first funded thanks to her estate. Her late husband, Charles Cameron, was a music lover throughout his entire life. The scholarship grants funding, which is managed by the Victoria University of Wellington Foundation, for Master’s studies – separately in Chemistry and in Music – and may include a component of travel inside New Zealand or to a destination outside of New Zealand.


About the Scholarship:

In 1897, the first group of students entered as freshmen at the institution that would later become Victoria University. A suburb of Wellington, Kelburn is home to the main campus. Kelburn is a community located around two kilometers (1.2 miles) from the heart of the city. In addition to the Law Faculty, which is a division of the Faculty of Commerce and Administration, there are a number of architectural and design schools right in the city proper.

Joining a student club or group is a great way to meet people and become engaged with  life in New Zealand. Education, engineering, medicine, sociology, and the arts and sciences are all taught at New Zealand’s Kelburn campus. The second facility is formally known as the Pipitea Campus. It is the nerve center of the administration of law, money, and government in New Zealand, and it is conveniently located near the actual seat of government. On the third and largest campus, Te Aro, you’ll find the School of Design and Architecture as well as other academic departments. In addition, it may come as a surprise to realize that Victoria University is located in the hub of Auckland’s business district.


You should think about getting your bachelor’s degree when you finish your current program. There are probably around a thousand dedicated teachers working there who only want the best for their students. As the home of more than forty research groups and centers, Victoria University is a great alternative for students seeking real-world experience in their chosen fields of study. The neighborhood around the campus and the university itself consistently receive high global rankings. This hints that it appreciates a wide variety of aesthetics. There will be a wide range of entertainment options available during the lunch break. The convenience of the university’s location close to major roads means that many people choose to attend class rather than drive to and from work. Victoria University has produced a remarkable amount of historical figures. Barbara Anderson, Sam Neill, Jane Campion, Doctor John Money, and Professor Alexander Gerst are names you have probably heard of.

When it comes to research intensity, the best indicator of a university’s dedication to research, Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand comes out on top. In all, there are around forty distinct labs available to students on campus. Undertaking activities such as internships, field trips, and research projects provides students with invaluable opportunities to develop their analytical and problem-solving skills. There are already more than 170 majors available to students at this university, so these are simply more choices.


Te Herenga Waka, the marae (Mori meeting house and gardens) on our campus, is the epicenter of our commitment to the tikanga Mori (Mori cultural traditions). Everyone in a student’s “whnau,” or extended family in Maori, is welcome here. The revitalization of a marae as part of the university’s Living P project is another excellent effort that will hopefully lead to a wider respect of indigenous peoples’ traditions. In an effort to make the world a more equitable, sustainable, and just place for all people, locals have set up a living lab called The Living P. Students and professors at the University of Wellington can take advantage of the city’s proximity to New Zealand’s governmental, cultural, economic, and scientific institutions by locating there.

New Zealand law is argued and enacted in close proximity to the Kelburn campus of the University of Auckland. Despite being New Zealand’s second-smallest city, Wellington is home to numerous cultural institutions. The city’s standing is built not just on the quality of its food and coffee, but also on the safety, friendliness, and openness of its inhabitants. At the University, we place a premium on developing admirable moral characteristics including empathy, justice, responsibility, and generosity. It is with the highest regard that these concepts are maintained. Our dedication to these principles is a reflection of our dedication to the values of sustainability, social responsibility, community participation, equity, diversity, collegiality, and transparency. The school’s commitment to its guiding ideas is shown via its emphasis on the students’ intellectual and emotional growth. The school has a staff ready to help international students with any questions or concerns they may have during their time there. As such, Victoria University of Wellington places a strong emphasis on teaching students how to connect effectively with people from all over the world..
