Our Scholarships

We currently offer two types of scholarships to build diversity and assist students with their finances

Māori and Pasifika Scholarships

We offer up to two full tuition (up to $24,000) scholarships for Māori and/or Pasifika students studying one of our six postgraduate programmes. At least one must go to a Pasifika student and preference will be given to those experiencing financial hardship.

“It’s changed the way I think and the way I do my work. It’s a whole process, and I’ve also found that with everything I do now, I try to be creative.” – Petone Groom, 2019 Māori and Pasifika Scholarship recipient, who’s currently studying our Master of User Experience Design.
