Massey University is offering International Student Excellence Scholarships which rewards high-achieving and capable international students undertaking full-time study at Massey University, supporting them in their studies.

Scholarship Value:

The value of the scholarship is up to $25,000. $10,000 is to be awarded for the first year of study (120 credits) with a subsequent $5,000 per 120 credits up to the total credit value of the program. Payment will be made against the recipient’s tuition fee account. Tenure will be determined by the program duration at the time of selection, up to 3 or 4 years.


Applicants must:

  • be full fee-paying international students.
  • be enrolling for the first time in a Massey University undergraduate degree.
  • be studying full time either on the Albany, Manawatu, or Wellington campus or online.
  • have an admission offer of a place before the scholarship closing date for the year of the award.

Selection Criteria:

Selection will be based on academic merit. Creative Art applicant’s portfolio will also be considered. Good character will be taken into consideration as illustrated by a letter of recommendation. The selection panel may take into account other factors, including but not limited to the applicant’s country of origin when making its decision.

Conditions of the Scholarship:

  • The scholarship value will be up to $20,000 for a three-year bachelor’s degree or up to $25,000 for a four-year bachelor’s degree. 
  • Students completing a pre-degree pathway through Massey University will be considered as a new student and can be considered for this scholarship upon admission into the undergraduate degree. 
  • Continuation of scholarship payments is subject to the recipient remaining in an eligible program and maintaining the required Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.0 (B average) after the first and subsequent years. 
  • Applicants who intend to or are already enrolled in a Massey University partner institution’s articulation program are not eligible for this scholarship. 
  • Applicants who are seeking advanced standing or credit transfer (but who are not part of a Massey University articulation) are eligible to apply for this scholarship, however, if successful they will only receive up to $5,000 per annum. 
  • Recipients of the Massey University International Student Excellence Scholarships are guaranteed an offer of a place in one of the university's Halls of Residence, provided an accommodation application is received by the Accommodation Service by 1 October. 
  • The scholarship will be credited to a recipient’s tuition fees account each semester following the final withdrawal (WMR) without a financial penalty date.
  • Continued scholarship payments will only be made if recipients remain full time full feepaying international students whilst studying in their approved program throughout the duration of their study.
  • In the event that a recipient withdraws from the approved program, and are eligible for a refund of their fees, Massey University will retain the scholarship proportion of the fee paid to the recipient.
  • The scholarship may be held in conjunction with other scholarships, bursaries, or awards, so long as those scholarships, bursaries, or awards permit co-tenure.
  • At the discretion of Massey University, the terms and conditions of the award may be modified in special circumstances or to avoid hardship to any recipient.
