All scholarships and bursaries at Massey University are the responsibility of the Scholarships team within the office of Research and Enterprise. Under the Scholarships Committee Terms of Reference, Council has delegated the power of approval of regulations for all scholarships, bursaries and other awards offered in the name of Massey University to the Scholarships Committee.
Scholarships are awarded only on academic achievement and usually have a minimum value of $1,000, tenable from one to three years. Bursaries are awarded on academic achievement and may take into account other criteria, such as financial hardship, sporting ability, community involvement, etc.
Students normally apply for either a scholarship or bursary, which will generally have a closing date set at the beginning or end of the academic year. However, with some awards, students may be nominated.
Recommendations for the award of scholarships and bursaries administered by the University must be referred to the Scholarships Committee, through the Scholarships team. When the recommendations have been approved, a Scholarships Administrator is responsible for advising the recipient and arranging payment of the award.
