Alumni Appeal

Thank you to our alumni and friends for your dedicated support of Great Futures Alumni Appeal Scholarships—you provide life-changing scholarships to students.

As part our Great Futures campaign, gifts to the Alumni Appeal this year will ensure even more talented young people are given the chance to fulfil their potential through a university education.

Each year, the University welcomes students from diverse backgrounds to enrol at Victoria University of Wellington. For many of these students and their families, the cost of their education may be out of reach. Alumni Appeal Scholarships will deliver more targeted support to these students. Each scholarship will help cover the ‘real costs of study’ and support the aspirational achievements of students who are financially disadvantaged.

Georgia’s story

This year 15 students were awarded Great Futures Alumni Appeal Scholarships to support their studies. Funded by donations from alumni, the scholarships help our talented students to overcome financial barriers and fulfil their potential through a university education.

One of the recipients, Georgia Tuatini, is in her second year studying towards a Bachelor of Education (Teaching) in Early Childhood and is thriving at university thanks to this support.

Receiving a scholarship is transformative, and we’d like even more students, no matter what their background, to be able to attend our university and aspire to great things.

The success of this appeal relies solely on the collective support of our alumni and friends—a gift today, no matter the size, will make a real difference to the life of a student tomorrow.

If you understand the value of receiving a world-class education and all the opportunities an undergraduate degree can offer a talented young person, then consider donating to the 2019 Alumni Appeal.
