Invest with us

Commercial investments

Science researchers are great at creating new ideas and a number of those ideas may have a commercial application, but to develop a novel idea into a commercial proposition takes time and money. If you have time and money to invest, contact Dr Rachel Elliot the Sciences Enterprise manager, and explore the possibilities.

Scholarships and prizes

This can be done through the Scholarships office, but is often done through particular departments. To contact the Scholarships office email karl.bartleet@otago.ac.nz or contact the relevant department from the list:

The Division of Sciences runs a number of community-based programmes and projects with the aim of getting more science happening - in schools or just for fun. You can be a part of this too, by providing resources either in kind or in cash!

More information about the programmes and projects that we run can be found on the Science Outreach @ Otago website.
