About the fund


University education is about critical thinking, fresh ideas and new ways of doing things. It is challenging - even demanding - but its benefits are considerable; not only for the students themselves but also for their families, communities and the wider society and economy. That is why AUT provides a wide range of scholarships and awards.


The purpose of these scholarships is to provide recognition to current undergraduate and/or postgraduate women students at AUT who have demonstrated support for women students at AUT.

Tenure of award

One year only.

Funds available
