- Full Scholarship – This type of scholarship is intended for school leavers and students who are already studying part time and want to fast track their degree by studying full time.
- Study Grant – This type of scholarship is suitable for people in the workforce who have a good study record and can make a reasonable time commitment to further study.
Applicants must have successfully completed at least 4 courses with a “B” grade average at an approved tertiary institute and the course of study should be pursued here in the Cook Islands even if the provider is located off-shore
- Study Starter Pack – One off grant to students wishing to travel overseas to study. It is available to first year students only and includes mature students.
- Full Scholarship (from second year of study and onwards) – Any students meeting the criteria of the Study Starter Pack and those that are studying privately. Students should submit application by due date even if they haven’t received their semester 2 results.
