EIT Raises the Scholarship Bar

EIT’s Year 13 degree scholarship, offering students a year’s free tuition fees, is to be awarded on individual merit.

The popular scholarship provides a fees-free first year for successful applicants wanting to study any of EIT’s 15 undergraduate degree programmes. They are available to secondary school leavers in the Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne regions, from Hicks Bay to Dannevirke.

Scholarships for the Bachelor of Māori Visual Arts (Te Toi o Ngā Rangi), the Bachelor of Viticulture, the Bachelor of Wine Science and the Viticulture/Wine Science concurrent degree are open to students nationwide.

In the restructured format, the scholarships will be awarded by a selection panel on the basis of criteria applying to students enrolling for programmes in 2015 and beyond. The value of each fees scholarship will be between $4805 and $6000 depending on the programme.

Priority applications close on Friday, 17 October. For further information, phone 0800 CALL EIT (0800 2255 348).

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary.
