This week several scholarship opportunities have been emailed to students and parents. Below is a recap of all scholarships that are available to school leavers and the Careers Office also holds hard copies. It is important for students to look at the criteria for each scholarship. Most important the students need to ensure they make the closing deadlines of each scholarship and to learn a little about the organisation who is offering the scholarship. If it takes an hour to apply, including research, and the scholarship is worth $1000, then that’s a pretty good hourly rate.
Most scholarships are open to Year 12 and Year 13’s who are leaving school to go on to further study. All tertiary study is included; Polytechnics, Universities, NZQA approved private institutions.
Now is also a good time to jump onto Money Hub which has a whole site dedicated to scholarships, with hints and tips.
