Scholarships at UC

Scholarships, grants and awards are a great way of funding your university study.

Search for scholarships

The Scholarships Office is currently in the process of implementing an online scholarships application system. The page for each scholarship may have a link to the online system or a message indicating when the link will be available. If the link is not listed, you will not be able to apply online; please download and complete the application form. 

The online application system requires you to have a myUC account; you must register with myUC prior to applying on-line for a scholarship.

Scholarships are competitive so you should start looking for funding opportunities as soon as you decide to apply to UC. This site lists scholarships and prizes that are administered by the UC Scholarships Office (unless otherwise stated), including those of Universities New Zealand. Further scholarships (including those managed entirely by external organisations) are listed on external websites and on UC CareerHub (you must be a current or former UC student to be able to access UC CareerHub).

 

Scholarships for you

To access the on-line scholarships application system in order to apply for scholarships, you must first register with myUC.

UC understands that a university education is a major investment for you and your family. A scholarship might just provide the helping hand you need to make university life a little easier.

UC offers a range of scholarships, many recognising factors like academic excellence or sporting achievement. Others have an emphasis on social inclusion and equality and are awarded on the basis of financial need or other hardship.
