Otago Polytechnic and Otago Hockey have announced a sponsorship and scholarship agreement that supports students’ academic and sporting aspirations, while also providing a significant boost to the code in the region.
The scholarships, which will be offered to two talented hockey players, cover a maximum of three years study, depending on the specific programme.
Scholarship applications are now open. They close on 31 July and will take effect from the beginning of 2020.
The scholarships are performance-based: recipients must meet the entry criteria for their programme of study and are required to pass 70% of their programme each year; they are also required to consistently perform at a high (representative) sporting level.
