Candice Davis, EIT New Zealand Diploma in Business studentEIT youth scholarships, partially funded by the government’s Youth Guarantee (YG) scholarship scheme, has  now been extended to 18 and 19 year olds who wish to study up to Level 3.

In addition to YG, due to funding changes by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) there are now also fee free study opportunities for 2014  for all those students who are studying at Level 1 or 2 and are 20 to 24 years old.
