Areas for support

Every single dollar raised goes directly towards helping students achieve their potential and to maximise the economic and social impact of the University. You can choose from a range of areas to support, including scholarships, research, campus developments or the Endowment Fund, which allows us to put your gift to the greatest area of need.

Scholarships and prizes

Scholarships celebrate the excellence and potential of our students. They can remove barriers to tertiary study, and enable students to realise and achieve their potential. There are many scholarships currently available, and you may wish to support an existing one or get in touch to talk about other scholarship options.

Advancing research

Research is critical for moving New Zealand forward. When you support research at the University of Waikato, you are helping some of the country's brightest minds tackle society's big issues and create solutions to benefit our communities. Take a look at some of our current research, and get in touch if you would like to consider supporting ongoing research.

Enhancing the student experience

Our Hamilton and Tauranga campuses are dedicated to providing our students with cutting-edge learning spaces and inspiring surroundings to help them succeed. Read about some of our current projects, including the Pā and Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts expansion. Get in touch with us to find out how you can support our campus developments.

Make a lasting gift

When you support the University's Endowment Fund, you are allowing the University to put your gift towards an area of great need, while also enhancing your gift's impact. The Endowment Fund exists in perpetuity, and is building to a point where the money it generates can be used to help the University. Talk to us to find out more about making a lasting gift.
