Congratulations to Year 12 student Telson Liuvaie, who has been awarded an Otago University Ambition Programme Scholarship.

“The University of Otago’s Ambition Programme is a fully funded outreach programme in which selected Year 12 Pasifika secondary school students visit our Dunedin campus.

The two-night programme features a range of interactive workshops from our four divisions – Health Sciences, Business, Humanities and Sciences. It contains inspiring presentations, fun activities and the opportunity to see many different attractions around Dunedin. Students will be immersed in student life and experience the range of study options available at the University of Otago.

Successful applicants were selected based on their all-round academic ability, their attitude to learning, a character reference from the school, and an essay highlighting their involvement in their school and Pacific community, as well as their aspirations to attend the University of Otago”.

Due to the current COVID-19 Delta outbreak, the Ambition programme in Dunedin has been postponed until April 27-29, 2022.
