Along with providing awesome recognition, scholarships provide financial support to students who excel and continue to strive for success academically. Just about every school, university, and polytechnic in the country offers ample opportunities to snap one up.
More often than not, there’ll be a scholarship you’re eligible for.
Whether it’s based on what you study, family backgrounds, school marks, or just your ambition in life, there’ll be one for you.
The best way to learn about what scholarships you may be able to apply for would be to plan what you want to do, where you want to study, and go from there, researching the scholarships and programmes that particular institution offers.
The eight universities, represented by their vice-chancellors, make up the membership of Universities New Zealand – Te Pōkai Tara, which is an awesome site if you wish to enquire more about their scholarships and opportunities.
In terms of international university scholarships, same deal. (My stepsister is in her first year of a university scholarship in the United States!) There are a few ways you can go about this:
- Through an agent
- Directly through the university.
Believe it or not, universities and polytechnics love international students and have places especially for them. To ensure you’re doing all you can to snap up that awesome ticket through your studies, apply for more than just one – apply for as many as you can!
