Applications now open for 2017
If you are studying at diploma level or higher, then take a few minutes to read our AST information booklet to see if you are eligible to apply for scholarship funding.
Each year the Aotearoa Scholarship Trust (AST) distribute funds designed to help tauira (students) achieve their higher educational goals, with a particular focus on Māori and Pasifika educational excellence.
Te Wānanga o Aotearoa tauira that meet the AST criteria are encouraged to apply. In some cases, these opportunities are also available to students studying at other tertiary institutions.
Applications for AST Awards and Scholarships must be received by Friday 26 May 2017.
