There are many scholarships, grants and awards available to students in New Zealand, all of which vary in what they offer.

Some scholarships may only cover tuition fees, while others will cover all course costs plus contribute to living expenses.

To get a scholarship, you need to meet certain criteria, which can be based on things like:

  • area of study

  • academic merit

  • community service or involvement

  • ethnicity

  • financial hardship

  • the industry or trade

  • leadership

  • the region you grew up in, or where you plan to study

If you meet the requirements outlined in the scholarship criteria, it's important to make your application as strong as possible.

Many Universities, Polytechs and other education providers offer their own scholarships, grants and awards. These tertiary education providers may also have a list of scholarships on their websites, including eligibility criteria and application forms.
