Peer scholars

Peer scholars are the undergraduate and postgraduate student leaders of Scholars@Massey. They support the scholar community as mentors, lead activities and events, and facilitate support for ongoing scholar development.

In addition to a Massey University Foundation Peer Scholar Award, peer scholars receive opportunities for learning and development about leadership, mentoring and their strengths. They are selected each academic year through a competitive scholarship application process.
