Aotearoa Scholarship Trust

The Aotearoa Scholarship Trust has paid more than half a million dollars to recipients throughout the country, supporting their academic journey and success.

The Aotearoa Scholarship Trust has been offering scholarships since 2012, with recipients coming from all walks of life. Some have just completed school and are beginning the next phase of their learning journey, while others are returning to study after a number of years to up-skill or pursue a new passion.

Our scholarships have supported tauira in many fields, including Māori Art, Te Reo, Social Services and Education. In all cases our scholarship recipients have demonstrated a commitment to educational success and a desire to want to give back to their communities and whānau.

The kaupapa of ‘giving back’ is also strongly evident in the contribution that was made by courageous leaders whose names we honour with these scholarships.

If you’re already studying with us, you can log in to our student website Te Matakā to find out more.
