The cost of a university education can be prohibitive – yet the benefits are numerous, not only for the students themselves but also for their families, communities, as well as for the larger community and economy. This is one of the reasons why this scholarship is being offered.
The Keir Trust Study Awards are intended to encourage students from both the Auckland region and beyond who are experiencing financial difficulties to pursue postsecondary education at AUT by providing financial aid as well as on-going non-financial assistance. Consequently, we actively encourage awardees to serve as role models for other students and members of their school and community communities.
About the Scholarship:
The Auckland University of Technology (AUT) was founded in the year 2000 and is a public research university. It was founded in 1895 as Auckland Technical School, and students may take evening classes there. When Auckland Technical College began offering daytime sessions, it was renamed to reflect this. In 2000, the university was renamed to reflect its new status as a university.
