The purpose of Victoria Achiever Scholarships are to recruit academically-able school leavers to a Bachelor’s degree programme at Victoria University of Wellington. Students must be represented in one or more of the following targeted groups: Māori students, Pacific students, students with disabilities, students from decile 1-3 schools and students who can demonstrate financial hardship. Up to 70 scholarships for study in 2016 will be awarded competitively on the basis of academic merit and other criteria. The majority of these scholarships will be awarded at $5,000 for the first year of study. The top applicant in each category will be awarded the new Victoria Vice-Chancellor’s Achiever Scholarship (ie. a total of five scholarships). These scholarships are valued at $20,000 over three years of study.
