The tertiary education provider has upped its number of doctoral scholarships from 138 to 200 new scholarships each year.

Domestic students from any university in the country with a GPA of 8.0 will be guaranteed a scholarship, while Māori and Pacific students require a GPA of 7.5.

The University of Auckland said the move was in line with its commitment to enhance the participation and success of Māori and Pacific students.
