Diverse Gender Scholarship

The total scholarship amount for a year of full-time study is $2,000 and for part-time study $1,000 and will be paid in two parts at the beginning of each semester.

Unitec is committed to providing an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity. One way to do this is by identifying and addressing barriers that diverse students face when engaged in tertiary study. The financial and networking support that this scholarship offers is intended to help support students with educational costs and acknowledge and address some of the unique barriers diverse gender students encounter.
