Massey University Foundation Peer Scholar Award

The recipients of the Massey University Foundation Peer Scholar Award will be the ambassadors and leaders of the Scholars@Massey program. Scholars@Massey connects scholarship holders at all levels of study across the university and supports them to be the best they can be in pursuing their scholarly aspirations.

As a Peer Scholar you will help others achieve and at the same time develop your own personal and professional skills through the supportive Scholars@Massey community.

Peer scholars are a select cohort who will be provided with a specialised development programme. This includes leadership and strengths training, and peer mentoring, as well as access to a number of other activities such as workshops, seminars and discussion groups, some of which will happen over a two-day retreat. Peer scholars will also receive $6000 to help support them in their studies. We are investing in our Peer Scholars with the expectation that they will commit to giving time to helping others succeed, and also so that they will be well equipped to become leaders of the Scholars@Massey community.

We're looking for high achieving individuals who have previously been awarded a Massey University Scholarship. You will be driven in your pursuit of personal and professional development and be excited about helping others.

These scholarships are available for students studying at all levels.

When choosing our recipients, we will consider your evidence of or potential for excellence, leadership, and contribution to academic and non-academic pursuits.
