Thanks to everyone who submitted an application – we had lots of interest this year with eight applications being submitted from a wide range of locations and across a range of topics:

  • Auckland, Waikato, ┬áBay of Plenty, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Central Otago;
  • 3 x geotechnical engineers; 5 x geologists;
  • 3 x PhDs and 5 x masters (two of which are for part-time study);
  • equal number of male and female applicants;

The judging panel will be reviewing the applications over the next few weeks and applicants will be notified upon completion.
