Scholarships

EXMSS offers a range of scholarships each year, as part of our annual scholarship programme.

 

Our scholarships are announced annually on the Massey University Extramural Facebook page, as well as on our website. The applications normally open in early October and are then evaluated by our scholarships committee before being announced and awarded.

 

To be eligible for one of the EXMSS scholarships, you need to fit the following criteria:

(i) Be currently enrolled, and;

(ii) A current member of EXMSS, and

(iii) have at least half of your current year’s enrolment in distance paper offerings

 

In 2016, the scholarships judging panel awarded seven major prizes of $1000 each, 14 runner-up prizes of $300 each, and everyone else who applied within the time limit received $100.

 

Each year we invite applications under a number of different categories. In the past, these have included:

 

* significant improvement in grades

* rendering help to other students

* financial hardship

* enduring through difficult circumstances

* parents returning to study

* visionary study plan

* profound essay

 

Keep an eye on this page, and on the Massey University Extramural Facebook page for further information, and for the application dates for our 2017 round of scholarships.
