For many students, the Undergraduate Disabilities Scholarship provides an opportunity they may not have otherwise had. For students with impairments or long-standing illness, medical costs can be high and may prevent these young people from attending University. This scholarship enables such students to pursue a path of study at Otago.
Together we can secure a brighter future for New Zealand by enabling more students to reach their full potential.
This year’s recipients of the Undergraduate Disabilities Scholarship are studying in a range of areas, and they are finding the scholarship to be of immense help in pursuing their chosen paths.
I was ecstatic because I was so happy to realise that all my hard work at College had paid off.
My family were over the moon, my mum especially.
It took all the financial pressure off me and allowed me to focus on my studies and figure out what I wanted to do.
