Scholarships have the power to change lives.
With the cost of living rising every year, many talented students face financial barriers to attending university and achieving their best. The Massey Foundation aims to ensure that deserving students have every opportunity to gain a world-class education at Massey, regardless of their financial circumstances.
The financial support provided by scholarships and bursaries can make a huge difference in the lives of individuals and their families. Yet, the affirmation of receiving a scholarship and the encouragement this brings can be even more powerful.
Each year, the Foundation distributes about half a million dollars in scholarships to Massey students. The stories below highlight the difference scholarships make to students’ lives.
We are very grateful for the support of everyone who has established or donated to a scholarship fund. Thank you so much for helping these students reach their potential.

“Before I received the scholarships I worked long hours, I was constantly tired and stressed, and I worried my research would suffer as a result.
After I received the scholarships my life was so much better! I stopped working and fully dedicated myself to my PhD on an emerging species of Campylobacter, one of the most prevalent and acute gastrointestinal illnesses in the developed world. The scholarships made such a big difference; I can’t thank the Foundation’s donors enough”.
