When will the successful recipients be announced?
2018's Toloa Tertiary Scholarship recipients have been announced, click here to view the winners. 2019 successful recipients will be announced around February 2019 (to be confirmed).
If I am successful in my application, how will the Scholarship payments be made?
Capped at $9000 per year, the Toloa Scholarships cover the course and compulsory fees for the approved programme of study. Compulsory fees are course fees, plus Student Services Fee and Building Levy.
Payment of the full scholarship amount will be made directly to your University's Scholarships Office at the beginning of the course of study. The Scholarships Office will manage allocation of the scholarship funds to approved fees. Scholarship funds will not be passed directly to you.
What if I change from STEM to Health Sciences?
If you transfer to a non-STEM course of study, or withdraw from study altogether, any unused scholarship funds will be returned to the Ministry.
I have won a Toloa Scholarship and keep getting reminders to pay my fees?
Please introduce yourself at the Scholarships Office and at the Pasifika Office. The University Scholarships Office can negotiate with the Student Finance Office to advise that a Scholarship payment is pending, and this may stop the recurring fees payment reminder.
Is there a place where Scholarship recipients can keep in touch with each other and update everyone on their progress?
