About the Scholarship

University of Waikato Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement has been established to contribute to the University’s Vision of achieving excellence, distinctiveness and international connectedness. Te Paewai o te Rangi can be translated to mean the water horizon.  It is the place where the ocean meets the sky, and where the sun sets and rises every day.  This is the transition point where Tāne traveled on his quest to ascend into the heavens and to suspend the stars in the sky.  Metaphorically, Te Paewai o te Rangi describes a person’s journey to achieve excellence.  It is the pathway to the stars; an unending pursuit to reach the pinnacle of your desires which in the case of this Scholarship is education and knowledge.
