About our sports scholarships

Find out more about our world-class sports scholarship programme.

 
Every year, we offer a select group of students the opportunity to gain a world-class academic qualification while developing their sporting abilities to a professional level.
 
As a sports scholar, your tuition fees will be paid for and you'll be part of our specialist athlete education programme.
 
We established the sports scholarship programme in 1999. It was the first of its kind in New Zealand and has produced some of the country's most well-known athletes.

We offer programmes in the following codes:
* Basketball
* Cricket
* Elite sports
* Hockey
* Netball
* Rugby
* Rowing.

Entry requirements
Sports scholarships are open to current and new students who already play, or have the potential to play, at representative level in their chosen sport.
 
If you are offered a conditional scholarship, you must achieve NCEA Level 3, plus University Entrance or the equivalent, to accept the scholarship. You will also need to take part in fitness testing to qualify for selection; however, in some instances, this requirement may be relaxed.
 
Closing date
15 August
