Are you starting to panic after realising just how much of a hit your bank balance has taken over this summer? Boy, those nights out on the town, and your new years away really have added up…
And you still need to pay for university fees, books, and a parking permit! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Just chill out my friend, you can always apply for scholarships as a financial supplement. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of different factors including: ethnicity, academic achievement, sporting excellence, disabilities and financial hardship.
Where to look:
- The Scholarships at UC page is a good place to start finding scholarships you are eligible to apply for
- There is a great deal of useful information and links on the CareersNZ website
- Check out the Universities New Zealand website for specific scholarships
- UC CareerHub also advertises scholarships
Tip: Get onto scholarships quickly so you don’t miss out!
