Hamza Mustafa Memorial Bursary

Hamza Mustafa was a 16-year-old student who died in the Christchurch mosque shootings on 15 March 2019. Hamza’s ambition was to study veterinary science and work in the veterinary field. This bursary was established, with approval from his mother, in memory of him.

The bursary was made possible due to the fundraising efforts of the staff at the School of Veterinary Science, Massey University, resulting in a large contribution from the VetNZ group, along with other corporate and individual sponsors both within New Zealand and overseas.

We're looking for someone who values inclusivity in the veterinary profession and who is experiencing financial need.

This is an undergraduate bursary. You will be enrolled in either the pre-selection or professional phase of the Bachelor of Veterinary Science at Massey University.

When selecting our recipient we will consider your financial need and position on the importance of inclusivity in the veterinary profession.

Preference may be given to applicants who are Muslim or belong to an under-represented ethnic group in the veterinary profession. Preference may also be given to applicants originally from the Canterbury region.

Application checklist

Please include the following with your application:

  • a personal statement of no more than 300 words outlining your financial need and how you would use these funds should you be successful
  • any appropriate supporting evidence of your current financial hardship, for example, a budget (optional)
  • a 500 to 1000-word essay on the importance of inclusivity in the veterinary profession
