The purpose of the scholarship is to recruit high-achieving undergraduate students to Victoria University of Wellington and to support them in their studies. The majority of these scholarships will be awarded at $5,000 with a small number being awarded at $10,000, which will be competitively awarded on academic merit.
– Applicants with NCEA Certificate Level 2 or above endorsed with Excellence will be considered. The excellence credits must have been obtained in Year 11 or 12; credits gained beyond Year 12 cannot be counted.
– Students with an equivalent level of achievement in an alternative qualification (eg. IB, CIE) will also be considered. See the regulations for more information.
– Attention will be given to which subjects the student has taken, and achievement in those subjects will need to have some relevance to the programme of study they intend to take at Victoria University.
– International fee-paying students who have completed at least one full year at a New Zealand secondary school are eligible to apply.
