The University of Auckland and the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind are partnering to develop braille maps of the University’s campuses.
Below are the RNZFB’s protocols for meeting and guiding people who are blind or vision impaired.
We have organised the Scholarships and Awards booklet into disability specific order. We also have included scholarships and awards for school leavers. In addition to disability specific scholarships we have added some general scholarships and awards and hope these may encourage you to find out more about any that may apply to you.
Good luck with your future applications!

We offer a variety of practical services for students, from advice to note-taking, as well as information (see below). Your disability or impairment might be permanent or temporary – the key thing is that it affects your ability to study.
You will need to provide us with relevant medical or professional evidence, but we may be able to assist people with:
- a mental health condition (students only).
- a learning disability (students only).
- impairment due to a medical condition.
- physical/mobility impairment.
- a head injury.
- a speech impairment.
- vision or hearing impairment.
- people that are blind or Deaf.
We can assist departments with advice on how to access a range of specialist equipment such as adaptive technology and specialist services such as New Zealand sign Language Interpreters. We also offer advice to staff about assisting students with impairments.
