Wakatū tertiary education scholarships help our owners to develop their skills for the benefit of our collective future.
Tertiary Education Scholarship
Applications for 2013 Tertiary Education Scholarships have closed. Many thanks to those that applied. We anticipate a response with our decision will be sent during December 2012.
Bachelor of Property Management Scholarship
This is a targeted scholarship and applicants must be enrolled in the Bachelor of Property Management at the University of Auckland. The scholarship is followed by work-based training with Wakatū that will result in membership of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.

How Wakatū scholarships work
Tertiary education scholarships are for studies directly related to our business, in areas such as:
Viticulture + Marine Biology + Aquaculture + Horticulture + Law + General Management + Property Development + Marketing + Finance
Each scholarship provides the successful applicant with financial support for fees and books, up to a maximum of three years. There are also bonus opportunities for studying te reo and achieving academic merit.
Study can be in New Zealand or overseas but must be through a recognised tertiary provider.
Who can apply
Applicants must be Wakatū shareholders or descendants of Wakatū shareholders and demonstrate a strong desire to get qualified.
