Your future is important to us and our planet.

We offer a range of scholarships for domestic students in 2024 that cover 50% of tuition fees on our Masters programmes to make learning accessible. We know that funding higher education can be one of the biggest barriers to participation.

Our mission is to support as many people as possible to gain the skills, knowledge and qualifications they need to create impactful futures.

Māori and Pacific learners are two of the most underrepresented demographic groups in postgraduate education in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our Tangata Whenua and Pacific Ako scholarships aims to reduce the financial barrier to extending knowledge and opening up new career, community and personal opportunities.

Learning is for life. Thriving, equitable societies means there must be a place for everyone. Our Taipakeke scholarship recognises that age should not be a barrier to building on past careers and experiences, refreshing opportunities and energy to continue to participate in the changing world.

Each year over $500,000 (NZD) worth of scholarships are awarded. For each intake for our Masters programmes, there are an allocated number of scholarships available to be awarded.

See FAQ ' How much scholarship funding is available' below for future details.

Terms and conditions


Creating impactful futures can’t wait till tomorrow.

Our Impact Scholarship is designed to give people who are already focused on making positive change, the skills and new knowledge needed to amplify their mahi, to make it bigger and make it lasting.

Unlike our other scholarships, the Impact scholarship does have specific criteria applicants need to evidence in a current project and impact on people, place and /or planet.

In your application you’ll need to answer a series of questions outlining the meaningful contributions you are making and could continue to make with the support of study with us, aligning this to at least one of the Impact Scholarship Criteria. Your application could be in a short video (5-10 min) with the link provided to us, or through a written submission, which you can upload or link to as part of your application. If you would like to discuss your scholarship application with our team, please contact - we are more than happy to chat about the incredible work you are doing and how our programmes could enable further positive impact.
