Applications are now OPEN for 2019!
The Whitireia Foundation is calling for scholarship applications, with applications closing on 14 December 2018.
Our scholarships are open to domestic students planning to study at Whitireia’s Porirua and Wellington campuses in 2019. 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 2019 scholarships.
These forms apply to the 2019 year.
