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 scholarships for school leavers is available from the AUT scholarships database.

Students who achieve the required level will be eligible at the completion of their first year to apply for the AUT Undergraduate Scholarship (Fees) available for subsequent years of study in an AUT bachelor’s degree under the same categories.
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.

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.
