The Whitireia Foundation is pleased to offer a number of scholarships to students planning to study at Whitireia NZ campuses in 2015.
The scholarships provide financial assistance for tuition fees, unless otherwise specified. New for 2015, in addition to a financial (or equivalent) award, are paid work experience opportunities with Maycroft Construction. Apprenticeships may follow for promising students completing their work experience with Maycroft.
With around $100,000 awarded in scholarships each year, the Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of all our sponsors, many who have supported Whitireia and the Foundation for a number of years. These committed sponsors include Fuji Xerox NZ, Altrusa and Zonta International of Mana, law firm Ford Sumner, Compass Health, Porirua City Council, Graduate Women Wellington, the Wellington Ostomy Association and the Campbell, Sheppard, Kirk-Burnnand and Simpson families.
The selection committee considers three main criteria when considering applicants and selecting recipients. These are: demonstration of a genuine desire and ability to succeed in the chosen area of study, financial circumstances and personal achievement. You can see a list of our scholarship recipients for 2015, in the Autumn Newsletter.
