Otago Rugby Scholarship


Otago Polytechnic and Otago Rugby Football Union have established this scholarship to support students with both sporting and academic aspirations.

  •  Candidates for the scholarship must be nominated by the Otago Rugby Football Union.
  • Student must provide evidence of successful completion of 70% or more of enrolled courses to attain the scholarship for the following year. Failure to do so may result in the cancelation of your existing scholarship.
  • Continuous study may include a bridging programme. For example, the Certificate in Health (Level 4) and the first two years of a health degree.  The student would be responsible for the full fees of the third year of the degree.
  • This scholarship applies to Domestic students only.
