Tech Futures lab offers a range of scholarships that cover 75% of tuition fees on our postgraduate programmes. Our mission is to support as many people as possible to gain the skills, knowledge and qualifications they need to ‘Create Impactful Futures’.
Go through to our enrolments platform to apply now and get underway with the next stage of your future.
Education should be accessible to anyone who chooses to put themselves forward to learn. A karahipi (scholarship) can be that one key needed to unlock opportunity for someone to shine.
Before you apply for a scholarship, we recommend you check whether you’re entitled to the NZ Government’s Fees Free scheme.
There is also a hardship fund available through the government that may be helpful if you experience an unexpected need for financial support during your learning journey.
Current as of 23rd November 2022.
How it works:
In 2023 we have a Total Scholarship Fund available across The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab. The fund can be used to cover 75% of tuition fees on any of the postgraduate programmes that The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab deliver. The funds can be allocated across any of the four scholarship types: Tangata Whenua, Pacific Ako, Taipakeke or Impact Scholarship.
Scholarships are only available until the Fund limit is met, so it pays to get in early and complete your application as soon as you can.
As an example, you might not be able to join an intake until July 2023, but as long as you complete your enrolment application early and the limit of the scholarship fund has not yet been met, you can apply to receive a 75% fees scholarship for that July programme intake.
How to apply:
You can apply for a scholarship as part of your enrolment process, all you need to do is select the scholarship you are eligible for when it appears as part of your enrolment. Please make sure you read the Things You Need To Know section below.
We’ll be in touch to let you know the outcome of your application within 5 days of submitting your application. You will then have 2 weeks to complete your programme enrolment to secure your scholarship funding.
