Golden Jubilee Scholarship
In 2014, the University of Waikato awarded 10 Golden Jubilee School Leaver Scholarships as part of the University's 50th anniversary. Valued at $10,000 per year for up to four years, these scholarships have been awarded to students who demonstrated a high level of academic excellence, leadership potential and community citizenship.
The University is continuously committed to developing and fostering future leaders. The Jubilee scholars, who were chosen from out of a strong field of applicants, will be upholding that commitment – to be champions and ambassadors for this University.
Their hard work, commitment and advocacy in the local community will serve as an example to their peers.
About the Scholarship
