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 2019 (with a September 2019 closing date for applications).
