The Massey University Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Trust Pasifika Scholarship is for students of Pacific Commonwealth nations and New Zealand citizens of Pacific Commonwealth nations descent at Massey University.
The scholarship is available for the years 2016 to 2020.
The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust is a charitable foundation with a mission to leave a lasting legacy, owned by the whole Commonwealth, in honour of Her Majesty The Queen.
A key objective of the trust is to assist people with disabilities by providing access to further education, enabling them to play an active part in their communities, and challenging community preconceptions of what they can do.
Massey University supports the trust’s objectives and principles by offering this scholarship.

Payment is made in two instalments, following the final date to withdraw in semester one and semester two. Payment in semester two is subject to review of academic performance.
