One of the most important choices you’ll make during your career will be your first.  We can help you make the right choice, and build a career that will take you places.

The PwC Scholarship has been created to give you the best start possible. The programme provides young talent with financial and mentoring support during university, and is a great opportunity to build relationships and create new networks.

As a winner you will not only receive our financial support and mentoring help throughout your university studies and future career, but you will also have the chance to work at PwC during one of your University summer holidays.

With our Scholarship programme, you’ll be off to a great start:

  • $7,000 towards your university fees and course related costs over the course of your degree
  • a PwC staff member to mentor you during your study
  • a paid Summer Internship to develop the foundation for your career
  • access to business networks amongst the best and brightest minds in New Zealand at our social and scholarship events
  • the opportunity to learn about what we do behind the scenes, so you can choose the career path that best suits you.

Your PwC mentor will be allocated to you before you start your first year of university, and they’re a current PwC staff member who’s passionate about helping you develop the skills you need for your career. They’re there to provide information about PwC and the different career opportunities open to you, and help guide your Summer Internship choice.
