Waikato Scholarships – start applying

May 6, 2020


It’s the time of the year to start thinking seriously about scholarships! Our scholarships for school leavers are now open and we encourage students to begin applying well in advance of the August 31st closing date. Students can use the Scholarships Finder to check their eligibility, open and closing dates, and application details. A number of the criteria for specific achievement at NCEA Level 3 have been impacted due to COVID-19 and our regulations have had some changes due to this. In particular, in the past where students have needed to achieve an overall endorsement at NCEA Level 3 to maintain a scholarship they have been awarded, this has been changed so that the student now must only achieve University Entrance for 2020 (unless the student has taken a GAP year in 2020).

If you have any questions about our scholarships, please feel free to email our Future Student Advisers or our Scholarships Office on scholarships@waikato.ac.nz.
