Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Alumni
The Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme has been operating since 2005. Since that time there has been a steady increase in the number of people who are graduating as Hillary Scholars.
A Hillary Alumni is a current or past Sir Edmund Hillary Scholar who has completed a recognised qualification at the University of Waikato whilst maintaining all requirements of the Hillary Scholarship programme, and subsequently graduate from that qualification. To graduate as a Sir Edmund Hillary Scholar is an achievement in itself and worthy of recognition.
Many of the Programme's talented Alumni have gone on to achieve great things, and followed interesting pathways. The following profiles provide a taste of what some are doing.
