The main purpose of the Scholarship is to financially support students from outside the Auckland area, and students from within the Auckland area where their travel time to the city campus takes more than one hour each way or where the travelling time and/or distance is determined to be disproportionately disadvantageous to the student, who are attending university for the first time, having left secondary school or kura in the previous two years. This approach reflects the University’s strategic recruitment goal to provide equal opportunities to all who have the potential to succeed in a university of high international standing.
