Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme

Inspiring excellence, all round development and leadership

The Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme educates future  leaders at the University of Waikato within the values of New Zealand’s  greatest adventurer, Sir Edmund Hillary. We are all inspired by the view that "Together, we believe the  impossible is a summit to be conquered".

Sir Edmund Hillary Scholars must excel in academia, leadership  and sports or creative and performing arts. Various professional development opportunities and fees support are  provided for Scholars.

The Hillary Programme enhances scholar's success through relationships with regional, national and international partners and sponsors. The Programme that started in 2005 commits to successful Scholars for their period of study at the University of Waikato.
