Advanced Energy Technology Scholarship

This scholarship provides financial support to encourage Māori, Pacific and women learners who have an interest in engineering (mechanical and electrical / electronics)

Te Pūkenga is participating in a national Advanced Energy Technology research and development programme in which the goal is to grow the capability and knowledge of learners in this emerging sector. MIT and Unitec are working in collaboration with several research organisations to develop the next generation of technology for high-performance electric motors for the transport sector (aircraft, ships and trains).

The purpose of the scholarship is to provide financial support and encourage Māori, Pacific and women learners who have an interest in this particular sector of electrical engineering, who are facing disadvantage and/or inequitable access to tertiary education that would otherwise present a barrier to them studying engineering.
