The purpose of the Scholarships is to provide funds to help women begin study for degrees in engineering and technology at a New Zealand university. The Scholarships are for women entering their first year of full time study for an undergraduate degree. Each Scholarship will be for one year, the initial year of study. The Scholarships are intended for school leavers and for mature women who have not previously studied technology and engineering at this level. For mature women, preference will be given to those who have worked in industry for at least three years and / or and have passed sub-degree courses in technology or engineering.
Applicants will be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents with at least three years proven residence in New Zealand. Applicants will hold the entry qualifications for their chosen degree.
