About the Scholarship:
The Auckland Institution of Technology (AUT) is a public research university in New Zealand that was established in the year 2000. It was formerly known as Auckland Technical School when it opened its doors in 1895, and students can attend evening sessions there. When Auckland Technical College began offering afternoon courses, the institution was renamed to better reflect this change in policy. The university was renamed in 2000 to better reflect its newfound status as a research institution.
