The Alfred George East Scholarship encourages participation in tertiary education, particularly in technical areas, such as design and nursing.

Value and tenure
The value of each scholarship depends on the particular circumstances of the applicant and the details of the case presented.
The tenure is for a single academic year.

The Trustees give the application of the trust deed the widest possible interpretation and consider applications in the following order of priority:
-all other design programmes
-any other programme with a substantial technical content but the Trustees are of the firm opinion that the deed does not include programmes in business, journalism and music.
The scholarship is not primarily awarded on a basis of performance, academic achievement or outstanding scholarship, but is a grant to aid students who could not otherwise continue with their studies or other career development initiatives.
The scholarship is awarded by the University Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of a selection panel consisting of Manager, Student Life Services; Service Leader, Student Administration; and Team Leader, Student Life Services at Massey University.
The University Scholarships Committee has the right to refrain from making an award if there are no suitable applicants and its decision is final.
Conditions of the scholarship
The scholarship may be held in conjunction with other scholarships, bursaries or awards, so long as those scholarships, bursaries or awards permit co-tenure.
