AUT’s Secondary Schools Scholarship Programme gives New Zealand secondary school students the opportunity to study at AUT with the benefit of a scholarship. Full information on all secondary schools scholarships is available from the AUT scholarships database.
Applicants are encouraged to apply for all of these scholarships if they meet the eligibility criteria.
These scholarships are for applicants who are the first in their family to seek to complete a degree. First-in-family normally means that neither of the applicant’s birth parents has successfully completed a degree level qualification.

Our scholarships database lists all the scholarships above and many others including the GABA scholarships for those who identify as LGBTI. Select Undergraduate (first year only) under level in the dropdown menu to find scholarships for your first year of study at AUT and beyond.
A rank score calculator is available for both NCEA and CIE.
As the recipient of an AUT undergraduate scholarship you have access to an extensive programme of support – from the Scholars’ Welcome at Orientation to the annual scholars’ ball and end-of-year celebration. There are also lots of professional development and networking opportunities, and one-on-one support throughout the year.
