Nadia Liebert3rd-year student, Bachelor of Business in Finance and International Business“I’ve been lucky enough to receive the AUT Woolf-Fisher First-in-Family scholarship. I cried on the phone when I got the call confirming that I received the scholarship! This has absolutely changed my time at university and means I can graduate without a student loan.”“I’ve been lucky enough to receive the AUT Woolf-Fisher First-in-Family scholarship. I cried on the phone when I got the call confirming that I received the scholarship! This has absolutely changed my time at university and means I can graduate without a student loan. Not having financial stress on top of everything else makes life so much easier when at university. We get amazing support from the scholar support team, and the opportunities that come with a scholarship are awesome – from networking and event invitations to being matched with a mentor.”

“Sport has always been my passion. I’ve recently been awarded an internship in New York by Sarah Robb O’Hagan who is a Kiwi American executive, activist and entrepreneur. I’m one lucky person, and am very excited to develop new skills and new insights into sport management through this internship.”“Sport has always been my passion. I’ve recently been awarded an internship in New York by Sarah Robb O’Hagan who is a Kiwi American executive, activist and entrepreneur. She is the CEO of Flywheel Sports, an indoor cycling company, which is where I’m working as a talent assistant for my 12-week internship. Sarah Robb O’Hagan loved my background and saw potential in me. She then chose me for this internship. I’m one lucky person, and am very excited to develop new skills and new insights into sport management through this internship.”

“From a young age, I’ve had strong opinions about crime, punishment and rehabilitation and I came to AUT to challenge, share and grow these beliefs. The Woolf Fisher Trust paid for my course fees for three years and put on many networking and team building events, and Kea supported me with a mentor from the New Zealand Police.”“From a young age, I’ve had strong opinions about crime, punishment and rehabilitation and I came to AUT to challenge, share and grow these beliefs. I appreciated the support I was offered throughout my studies. The Woolf Fisher First Trust paid for my course fees for three years, supported me with a mentor from the New Zealand Police, and put on many networking and team building events. I think winning the AUT Woolf-Fisher First-in-Family scholarship is one of the most significant things I’ve achieved. I was constantly reminded that I can achieve anything with the right attitude, heart and determination.”
