We encourage applicants who display the key attributes of excellence, leadership and commitment to their community (the primary consideration for these scholarships is academic excellence with additional factors taken into consideration). In supporting academically-strong school leavers to study at Victoria, the University recognises them as New Zealand’s scholars of the future. These scholarships will be offered to the top school-leaver applicants enrolling in any of Victoria University’s Bachelor degree programmes.
The Scholarship is valued at $5,000 in the first year of study and may be credited to Victoria Halls of Residence costs or paid as a stipend (paid in 9 equal instalments from March-November).
