Opening up access to education: Rocket Lab tertiary scholarship 

Rocket Lab’s annual  tertiary scholarship offers New Zealand’s future innovators, scientists and engineers an opportunity to get a head-start in STEM careers.

The Rocket Lab Scholarship offers $20,000 across four years of study for one outstanding student pursuing a degree or course in STEM education. The Scholarship also pairs recipients with a Rocket Lab mentor towards the end of their degree to enable them to learn from the country’s leading space and engineering experts at Rocket Lab.

Rocket Lab scholars must demonstrate an interest in science, technology or engineering and be involved in cultural, community or leadership activities. Any applicant with a strong connection to the Māhia and wider Wairoa District will have an advantage.
