Successful scholars are expected to use their scholarship to defray expenses related to their attendance at University.
Applicants for the scholarships must:

b) Be a New Zealand citizen or hold a Permanent New Zealand residency; and
c) Demonstrate good citizenship; and
d) Show leadership potential; and

The Scholarships will be awarded without regard to gender, ethnic background, creed or age. Family association with Freemasonry is not a criterion for the award of a scholarship.
However, Freemasons have a tradition of caring for their community and will assist those who contribute back to the community.
