Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) is pleased to announce an accommodation bursary for students eligible for the Government’s Fees Free policy that comes into effect on 01 January 2018. His worship, Mayor of Invercargill Tim Shadbolt having supported this initiative from the onset has now consolidated his backing by lending his name to the bursary.
Eligibility criteria for the Mayor Tim Shadbolt Accommodation Bursaries for Invercargill will reflect that of the Government’s Fees Free policy. To check your eligibility for the Fees Free Policy please check here http://www.feesfree.govt.nz. SIT can confirm that eligible students, in addition to getting their first year of tertiary studies for free, will also be able to apply for free shared accommodation at SIT’s apartments in Invercargill for the academic year (40 weeks’ maximum). Alternatively, eligible students at our Invercargill campus can opt to receive a $100/week accommodation bursary regardless of whether they live at home or in rental accommodation. Again, this will be offered for the academic year, for up to 40 weeks’ maximum.
