The Scholarships were established in 2009 and are financed by the Faculty of Arts at The University of Auckland.
The purpose of the Scholarships is to further develop the relationship, based on the Memorandum of Understanding, between The University of Auckland and Ngâti Whâtua o Ôrakei. This initiative will develop benefits for students of Ngâti Whâtua o Ôrakei by supporting the Ôrakei Trust Board to realise their education goals. These Scholarships are intended to encourage Ngâti Whâtua o Ôrakei students to study in the Faculty of Arts.
The Scholarships were established in 2009 to support Māori and Pacific students in their final year of undergraduate study. The Scholarships also aim to encourage students into postgraduate study.
The scholarship was established by Mark and Sally Synnott in memory of Mark’s brother, Michael Synnott, to encourage students of Māori and Pacific descent residing or attending schools in the area commonly referred to as South Auckland to attend The University of Auckland.
Each year, The University of Auckland awards $30 million worth of scholarships to students from all levels of study. As a new student, you could be eligible for one of more than 300 undergraduate scholarships and awards.
