Potentia Māori & Pasifika Scholarships - limited number on offer

We are proud to partner with Potentia, a specialist technology recruitment agency. For them, it’s all about people and as an organisation that’s committed to making a difference in the industry, they’re passionate about building tomorrow’s technology professionals from the grassroots up. Recognising the underrepresentation of Māori & Pasifika in the tech industry, this is Potentia’s way of giving back (and helping drive success) in communities that need it most.

So if you are of Māori or Pacific Island descent and have consistently demonstrated exceptional potential and a passion for technology, then you should consider applying for a Potentia Māori & Pasifika Scholarship which offer students 90% off of their fees for each year of Yoobee’s Bachelor Software Engineering Degree.
