Purpose of award
The University recognises that students from refugee backgrounds are likely to experience barriers to accessing and succeeding at the University. The primary purpose of the Scholarship is to mitigate the economic barriers faced by students from refugee backgrounds so that they can access undergraduate study and the transformative potential of a tertiary qualification.
To be offered the Scholarship, candidates must be currently enrolled in Year 13 at a New Zealand Secondary School and intending to enrol full-time in a degree at the University of Auckland in the following year.
The Scholarship will be offered to students who are citizens or permanent residents of New Zealand and come from a refugee background.
How do students apply?
The Scholarship will be awarded by the University of Auckland Council on the recommendation of a selection committee comprising the Chair of the Scholarships Committee (or nominee), the Pro Vice Chancellor (Equity) (or nominee) and one representative of Alumni Relations and Development.
History or background of award
The Scholarship was established in 2016 by funds received from the University of Auckland alumni and friends.
