Advanced Energy Technology Scholarship

Te Pūkenga is participating in a national Advanced Energy Technology research and development programme in which the goal is to grow the capability and knowledge of learners in this emerging sector. Unitec and MIT are working in collaboration with a number of research organisations who are researching and developing the next generation of technology for high performance electric motors for the transport sector (aircraft, ships and trains). 

The purpose of the Scholarship is to provide financial support and encourage Māori, Pacific and women learners who have an interest in this particular sector of Engineering (Electrical), who are facing disadvantage and/or inequitable access to tertiary education which would otherwise present a barrier to them studying engineering. 

Award value: $5,000 Number available: 5
