Bank offers students cash injection

Bank offers students cash injection

Some lucky students from universities across the country are doing a whole lot better in their studies thanks to a cash injection from Bank of New Zealand.

Each year the Bank awards one post-graduate and one under-graduate scholarship to students at New Zealand’s eight universities*. Applications for 2006 scholarships are now being taken.

For winners like PhD student, Adrian Pais who won a scholarship last year, it meant he was able to support himself to the end of his thesis.

‘The scholarship came just in time. I was very grateful for the support from the Bank just when I needed it,’ says Mr Pais who is working on breakthrough indoor wireless technology for mobile communications.

Winners of the Bank of New Zealand under-graduate scholarship receive $3,000. Post-graduate students are awarded $4,000.

Bank of New Zealand National Sponsorship Manager, Richard Allen says the scholarships are not just for business students, sports people or top scholars.

‘The Bank, in association with the university’s scholarship selection panel, looks for well-rounded students with the determination and ability to be the leaders of tomorrow,’ he says.

Bank of New Zealand has been rewarding tertiary students who display outstanding leadership and community involvement with scholarships since 1990.

Applications close on 1 April 2006.

Information for those interested in applying for the 2006 Bank of New Zealand scholarships is available on and

* The universities are Auckland University of Technology, University of Auckland, University of Waikato, Massey University, Victoria University of Wellington, University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and University of Otago.
