Otago Polytechnic

Pacific Island Scholarships 

The purpose of this Scholarship is to assist Pacific Island students at Otago Polytechnic who show ability and character to succeed in their field of study.

The Scholarship is open to Otago Polytechnic students who identify as Pacific Island (i.e. Pacific Island ethnic origin) and are permanent residents or citizens of New Zealand who are currently enrolled in 0.5 EFTS or more. The scholarship is by way of fee contribution and is paid retrospectively - that is for the current year of enrolment and based on success in the current programme of study.

Information and application forms will be emailed to currently enrolled Pacific Island students during August 2018 (with a September 2018 closing date for applications). Click here for a copy of the 2017 application form or for more information, please email Pam.thompson@op.ac.nz
