Otago Polytechnic Women in Information Technology Scholarship


The purpose of this scholarship is to recognise that women in New Zealand are under-represented in the Information Technology industry in comparison to the majority of the developed world. Women represent less than 16% of the workforce in technical roles.

This scholarship is intended to assist a female student studying at Otago Polytechnic who shows ability and character to succeed in the field of information technology.

It is open to all full-time female students enrolled in the Bachelor of Information Technology in Semester Two. 

This scholarship will contribute $1,000 towards course fees for every year of study in this degree.

Applications are closed for 2019 but will re-open for 2020.
