The Professor John Asher Scholarship in German was established in 2009 to encourage study in German. The Scholarship has been made possible through the generosity of Mrs Monica Asher and the family of Professor John Asher.

Professor John Asher was a graduate and a member of the staff of Waipapa Taumata Rau, University of Auckland. As founding Professor of German and Head of Department from 1958 to 1986 he developed the longstanding relationships the University holds with German academic institutions, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the German community in New Zealand.
