Prize Concerts at the School of Music

There are many promising students who, because of their circumstances, are unable to come to university to further their training. Scholarships play a vital role in helping many students into tertiary education. If you would like to donate towards a scholarship or support the programmes offered by the University of Auckland in any other way, we would be very pleased to hear from you.
