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. Applicants must be enrolled and accepted into one of our programmes before applying this scholarship. Applicants must provide proof of ethnicity, iwi, whakapapa. Learn more details?

“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.

Weta Digital Scholarship

We launched a new full tuition scholarship in partnership with Weta Digital in 2019 for our Master of Design Technology.

Weta Digital Human Resources Manager Brendan Keys said the scholarship is an extension of the enduring relationship between the company and the school and is intended to boost applications from those interested in pursuing visual effects as a career.

The Programme Director of Design Technology, Raqi Syed, was the Senior Technical Director at Weta Digital on AvatarThe Planet of the Apes films, and The Hobbit Trilogy so students are taught by the best.

Keep an eye out for a possible 2020 scholarship
