The Scholarship will cover tuition fees for up to three years for a student's chosen programme of study at Otago Polytechnic. The purpose of the Runaka scholarship is to encourage Kai Tahu students to succeed in tertiary education by removing financial barriers to study. The scholarships also acknowledge the contribution students can make to their Runaka and local community.
There is one scholarship on offer for Kati Huirapa Runaka. Candidates must be registered with the Runaka before applying. The scholarships do not accumulate to the next year. If the Runaka does not select a student one year, the scholarship lapses for that year.
