m@d distance scholarships

Massey@Distance offers a range of scholarships each year just for Massey University distance students, as part of our annual scholarship programme.

Application announcements will be made on this page and social media. The applications normally open in mid to late Semester 1, and are then evaluated by our scholarships committee before being announced and awarded.


To be eligible for one of the M@D scholarships, you need to fit the following criteria:

  1. Be currently enrolled as a distance student.
  2. Have at least half of your current year’s enrolment in distance paper offerings.

Each year we invite applications under a number of different categories. In the past, these have included:

  • Significant improvement in grades
  • Rendering help to other students
  • Financial hardship
  • Significant merit in personal and/or academic achievements
  • Enduring through difficult circumstances
  • Parents returning to study
  • Visionary study plan
  • Profound essay
