STUDENT ALLOWANCE – A Student Allowance is a weekly payment that can help with your living expenses while you’re studying. You don’t have to pay the money back.
STUDENT LOANS – If you need help to pay for day-to-day living expenses, you may be able to get a weekly payment of living costs. Living costs are part of a Student Loan so you’ll need to pay them back. You would also need to meet the criteria to receive it, to find out more go to https://www.studylink.govt.nz/products/a-z-products/student-allowance/index.html

Scholarships – What are they? Scholarships are offered by universities, companies and private organisations to students from all over New Zealand. The purpose of a scholarship is to help finance a student’s educational journey to reduce the value of the individual’s student loan.
​Scholarship money is particularly useful for helping to pay course costs, living costs, and food costs among other things. It is important to note that different scholarships might only help in specific areas. There are hundreds of scholarships available every year to Year 13 students. Provided you are eligible, you are in with a chance of being awarded one.
It’s essential to know that scholarships are competitive, have limited numbers and follow strict deadlines. To have the best chance of success, it is crucial you get onto them early. School holidays are the ideal time to look and apply for scholarships as you don’t have the distractions that come with term time.
