Message from the University
(Received 8 July 2016)
I am very excited to be able to let you know that the University has just launched 20 Scholarships worth $25,000 for students applying to the University for 2017 onward.
The new scholarship will support high-achieving school leavers to achieve academic excellence at the University of Waikato.
Te Paewai o Te Rangi*: The University of Waikato Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement is worth up to $25,000 over three years and will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence, leadership potential, and community citizenship. As part of the scholarship students will receive a guaranteed place in the Universitys Halls of Residence during their first year of study.
Applications for Te Paewai o Te Rangi close 31 August 2016 and 20 scholarships are available each year. The scholarship will be applied to tuition fees and, where applicable, Halls of Residence fees. More information is available here: http://outstanding.ac.nz
