Eligibility – These scholarships target domestic and international undergraduate students studying full or part-time, in any field of study at Massey University, who can demonstrate their commitment to and advancement of sustainability for Aotearoa New Zealand.
Specifically, the students should be engaged in advancing our understandings of how to sustain our people, our place and our economy, as outlined in the Sustainability Framework developed by Air New Zealand. For example, the scholarships target students learning about and advancing progressive workplace practices, inclusive communities, an ultra-low carbon economy, biodiversity, tourism and world-class health and safety standards.

Annually, a scholarship will be awarded to a Māori student, a female business student and a distance student.
Eligible students may apply for the award in consecutive years.
