As part of the Foundation’s objective 'To encourage New Zealand school leavers into tertiary education and technology', scholarships are offered annually for the purpose of assisting with university costs.
2015 Scholarships - six scholarships valued at $4,000 each, are open to application in 2014 for study commencing in 2015.
Students from Years 12 or 13 are eligible to apply, and the recipients are chosen on the basis of their intention to pursue engineering as a career, motivation to succeed, academic merit, general character and contributions to the community.
The scholarships are for those studying any of the following IPENZ-accredited degrees:
- Three-year Bachelor of Engineering Technology – BEngTech
- Four-year Bachelor of Engineering – BE
- Four-year Bachelor of Engineering Honours – BE (Hons)
The IPENZ Foundation Scholarship application portal is now open for online registrations and submission of supporting documentation.
NOTE - the application closing date has now been extended to
Friday 24 October to avoid clashing with school holidays.
