Thinking about a scholarship?

Here are some happy snaps from our scholarship awards on 22 March this year.

If you’d like to join us in 2018, keep an eye out for our 2018 application, launching in early October.

In October, you’ll find applications at the admin office or student hub, at Whitireia NZ’s Wellington and Porirua campuses, and you can download everything you need here or at

Think your grades aren’t good enough? Give Whitireia a call on 0800 944 847 before completing your application – they can give you the best advice about your course selection.

Have you always wanted to work in health or IT, to be a qualified builder, a plumber, or auto-electrician? Maybe you’d like a career in fine art or performance, broadcasting, music or early-childhood teaching?

Our mission is about ensuring that cost is not stopping you from studying with Whitireia. So for us, it’s not all about grades. If you’re the first in your family to undertake tertiary study, let us know, we want to support you. If you want a great new job and need a qualification and some financial support to do it, we’re interested in hearing from you.

Check out the 2018 course prospectus, it’ll be out soon.

If you need a helping hand to pay fees or buy materials, a scholarship might be just the thing.

Let your enthusiasm and commitment to a programme of study shine through on your application, and take that step. We would love to see you in next year’s pics 🙂

Anything to do with people and the environment and I'm interested! I have been writing and commenting about education, the environment and other community-related matters since 2006. I'm a compulsive researcher. In 2009, I finished a thesis on Kapiti's water issues and am still researching outcomes there. This website and the work I do as a trustee for the Whitireia Foundation are part of my aspiration to contribute to 'shaping more sustainable communities'...also the title of my thesis. Look it up - it's free at
