Yes! Applications are OPEN for 2020!
The Whitireia Foundation is calling for scholarship applications, with applications closing on 6 December 2019.
Our scholarships are open to domestic students planning to study at Whitireia’s Porirua and Wellington campuses in 2020. They provide financial assistance for tuition fees, unless otherwise specified.
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. Some scholarships cover tools.
Please refer to the documents below if you are considering making an application for our 2020 scholarships.
