The basis of selection will be academic merit and financial need (see Notes i and ii).
The Grants are tenable by students of Māori and Pacific descent who are citizens or permanent residents of New Zealand.
What conditions are attached to acceptance of this award?
To continue to hold the Grants the recipients must maintain a full-time degree programme of study at the University of Auckland Business School with a Grade Point Average of at least 3.00 (equivalent to a C+ average) in each semester of study.
