"Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean."
This year is about new beginnings.
It is about enabling talented young people to reach their full potential at a world class university. It is also about conducting cutting-edge research so our children have the best possible start in life.
Our Annual Appeal is crucial to ensuring our legacy as New Zealand’s first university providing world-class teaching and research continues. In 2014 we have chosen two inspiring initiatives that will have a real impact on New Zealand’s future – scholarships and women’s health.
We offer a range of scholarships for gifted students who have demonstrated exceptional academic prowess, or who are experiencing economic barriers to study. Our scholarship programmes enable these students to receive a first class education at the University of Otago and take their place in the world. Without these scholarships, many would struggle to pursue higher education.
Our Women’s Health Research Centre is dedicated to saving lives. Health risks during pregnancy, labour and the early years of a baby’s life can be reduced with the right knowledge and understanding. By involving local health service providers, iwi and community groups, the Centre works to help ensure our nation’s babies have the best possible start in life.
You are welcome to look at our 2014 Annual Appeal Brochure (pdf file) or download a Gift Form if you would like to post your donation to us. Please help us to achieve a brighter future. Together, we will.
