Financial hardship

If you're experiencing financial hardship we may be able to help.

Student finance advisers can help with budgeting advice, StudyLink issues and a comprehensive range of financial information and support. We encourage students to make an appointment as early as possible. As a start, scholarship holders may find the Wellington Doctoral Scholarship Financial Timeline helpful when planning a budget.

Doctoral students can apply to the Wellington Doctoral Hardship Scholarship, with preference given to those nearing completion, or those in between submission and the oral examination. Students will continue to have access to the general Hardship Fund throughout their candidature for any unexpected hardship they may encounter.
