Odyssey Addiction Research Scholarship

The University of Auckland intends to offer the Odyssey Addiction Research Scholarship in 2021, which is funded by Odyssey House Trust (Odyssey), a not-for-profit organisation focussed on helping New Zealanders overcome alcohol, drug and gambling challenges.

The main purpose of this Scholarship is to support a master’s thesis or PhD student in the Faculty of Medical Sciences at the University of Auckland, undertaking research that is of relevance to Odyssey and that will develop the addiction sector evidence base. Preferential consideration will be given to research projects that align closely with the Odyssey Pillars and recovery approaches.
