Priscilla Sandys Wunsch Scholarships
This Scholarship Trust was established in 2000 when Miss Priscilla Sandys Wunsch, a Bachelor of Arts graduate (1946) from the University of Otago, left $3 million to endow scholarships to the University of Otago for Taranaki students who would otherwise not be able to afford a tertiary education. The scholarships are designed to provide financial assistance to Taranaki school leavers enrolling in any degree course at the University of Otago. The scholarships are awarded on a year to year basis for up to three years of study. Each scholarship is intended to provide the level of assistance considered by the Trustees as appropriate for the individual student.
The number of new scholarships available each year depends on the Trust's annual income less the value of the scholarships awarded to continuing recipients. Continuing financial support is conditional on examination success.
Business Management, Administration, Human Resources & Marketing
Art, Media, Communication
Applicants will be interviewed and scholars selected based on hardship, financial need and academic merit. Successful candidates are required to sign a Terms of Acceptance Agreement prior to payment of the scholarships. Recipients of a partial scholarship may receive any other bursary, scholarship or prize. Recipients must be enrolled fulltime at the University of Otago. Applicants must have been resident in Taranaki for at least five years.
Information on applications is available from the Principal’s Office of your Taranaki Secondary School.
Up to $17,500 a year.
