McDonald’s Te Tai Tokerau Scholarship

McDonald’s New Zealand established an annual sponsorship programme with the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in 1993. The primary aim of this scholarship is to extend education opportunities to Maori students from the Northland region, who may otherwise find it difficult to pursue a tertiary education. Together with AUT, McDonald’s has helped 69 students to attend AUT, with 35 graduates and 15 students currently studying.

This year, Year 13 student, Keani Erstich-Coles, was awarded the McDonald’s Te Tai Tokerau Scholarship to study at AUT in 2017. The scholarship committee were extremely impressed with the calibre of applicants and we are thrilled that an Okaihau College student was one of the three applicants accepted. Best wishes with your studies Keani.
