The University of Otago believes that there is no better investment in New Zealand’s future than supporting scholarships, giving bright young people a chance to fulfill their potential and make a significant contribution to society.
As well as the Alumni Appeal Scholarships, the University offers a full suite of entrance, undergraduate, disability, and postgraduate scholarships, as well as a wide range of more specialised scholarships such as departmental awards and student exchange grants.
The University of Otago would like to help so many more scholars. This year, consider giving to a scholarship fund. Your donation may be the key to unlocking someone’s future! Read more below on the Alumni Scholarships
