Careers – Scholarships

The season for applying for scholarships for tertiary education and accommodation is here now. Most scholarships close in August…

Information is now arriving in the school about available scholarships. This is great way to fund your university study. 

I send  information, as it comes to hand, to all Year 13s, using their school email address.  

The NZ Careers website offers information on what is available and tips  on how to apply
