We are proud to partner with Potentia, a specialist technology recruitment agency. For them, it’s all about people and as an organisation that’s committed to making a difference in the industry, they’re passionate about building tomorrow’s technology professionals from the grassroots up. Recognising the underrepresentation of Māori & Pasifika in the tech industry, this is Potentia’s way of giving back (and helping drive success) in communities that need it most.
So if you are of Māori or Pacific Island descent and have consistently demonstrated exceptional potential and a passion for technology, then you should consider applying for a Potentia Māori & Pasifika Scholarship which offer students 90% of their fees paid for each year of Yoobee’s Bachelor Software Engineering Degree.
How do I apply?
To apply explicitly state that you are applying for this scholarship in your Letter of Intent, which is part of your official Yoobee Colleges application.
The submissions will be judged by Yoobee Colleges' Academic and Admissions Panel, which will consist of representatives from the programme that the student is applying for as well as members from the Admissions Department.
The scholarship entitles the winner to a 90% discount on the tuition fees for all three years of the programme starting in February 2021.
This scholarship would offer tuition fees of $27,000 paid over three years i.e. $9,000 in year 1, year 2, and year 3. The remaining $1,000 per year in tuition fees is eligible to be paid through studylink.
Living costs are also eligible to be paid via studylink. Find out more about living costs in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch here.
The scholarship recipient is expected to maintain a minimum GPA and complete the course in the standard duration of the programme.
