The N G Stewart Scholarship is awarded to a student of the University who has a disability that makes attending university a challenge.

The N G Stewart Scholarship was established in 2003 with funds bequeathed by Norman George Stewart (1913-1997) through the Stewart Coombs Trust. Mr Stewart was Managing Director of the Dunedin company J K Mooney New Zealand Limited, an exporter of wool and skins, and also served as a Director of a number of Dunedin companies. After returning from service with the Royal Navy during the Second World War he became interested in assisting with the rehabilitation of disabled servicemen in Dunedin.

Applicants must:

  • Be a New Zealand citizen or New Zealand Residence Class Visa Holder
  • Have a disability of at least six months or longer
  • Be intending to enrol, or already be enrolled in an undergraduate degree at the University of Otago

A student who has held the scholarship may apply again for up to a further two years, provided that he or she continues to make satisfactory progress in all respects.
