The Whitireia Foundation has launched its scholarships for 2022.

Please ensure you read and complete the Application Guide and Form. If you are currently studying at Whitireia and are returning in 2022 please ensure your Tutor or Programme Manager completes the Progress Report. Applications close 28th January 2022.

Our scholarships provide financial assistance for tuition fees, unless otherwise specified. Some scholarships cover tools and other relevant materials such as laptops and software.
In addition to a financial (or equivalent) award, some students will have paid work experience opportunities. Apprenticeships may follow for promising students completing their work experience.

We awarded 39 scholarships for 2021, including three NEW (Māori Health) scholarships awarded mid-year from NZ Health Group.
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 Ngāti Toa, law firm Ford Sumner, Compass Health, Porirua City Council, Elite Services, Alpha NZ Ltd, Graduate Women (Wellington) Charitable Trust and the Campbell and Kirk-Burnnand families, EftPos Vending Ltd, Gee & Hickton Funeral Home, and Red Wolf Security. Offering scholarships for the seventh time are Foster + Melville Architects. Thanks to our newest sponsors Atareira, Maude & Miller and OCS for coming on board with us! We are also hugely grateful to the Nikau Foundation for supporting TEN students in 2021, carrying on the work started by the Porirua Trust.
