This year we celebrate the achievements of our scholarship winners.
These deserving students demonstrated the values of the scholarship requirements across several universities: academic achievement, resilience, leadership, excellence, cultural contributions, social engagement, overcoming adversity, and many other indicators. These students are thoroughly deserving of financial and personal support, and these scholarships will provide an amazing boost as they kickstart their tertiary journey. With the fees, cash, catered accommodation, summer school programmes and mentoring support, this photo from our Prizegiving Evening represents half a million dollars that Universities have invested in Te Aratai College students for their future pathways. An amazing achievement.
