Applying for a Sports, Future Leader, or Excellence Lincoln University scholarship
If you are applying for a Lincoln University Sports Scholarship, Future Leader Scholarship, or the Scholarship for Excellence, you can do this during the application process when applying for study at Lincoln, via the MyLinc system.
Applying for other scholarships
If you are applying for any of our other scholarships at Lincoln, you will need to complete the prescribed form and supply the requested documentation.
Each scholarship has a set of regulations that specifies who is eligible to apply for the scholarship. Please read the regulations thoroughly to determine your eligibility. Ensure that you answer every question on the application form and provide all requested documentation e.g. birth certificate (ensure that this is a certified copy), academic transcript, photo etc. Only provide the information that is requested.
Please only provide a Curriculum Vitae (CV) if this is requested. If a CV is not requested, it will not benefit your application.
Please do not provide original documents, ensure that they are certified copies.
Ensure that you complete and attach the requested documentation for each scholarship that you apply for. Documentation (such as birth certificates and academic transcripts) will not be gathered from your application to study or previous scholarship applications. Treat each application individually.
Current Lincoln University students have access to their academic transcripts via the University's student management system, LUCAS. Please ensure that you attach your own transcript as this is not the responsibility of the scholarships office.
All pages should be A4 size and stapled in the top left hand corner. Only use one staple per application. Please do not bind your application or put it in a folder.
Please ensure that your application reaches the Scholarships Office, PO Box 85084, Lincoln University, Lincoln 7647, or the address provided on the application, prior to the closing date.
No undertaking will be given to accept late or incomplete applications.
Ensure that your application is neatly presented. Applications that are difficult to read or incomplete may be disadvantaged.
