Lenovo and AUT University offer laptop scholarships
Posted on 25-Sep-2007 17:44. | Tags Filed under: News.



Lenovo and AUT University have announced a new scholarship that will provide high-achieving academic performers with ThinkPad notebook computers, hoping to increase the students' individual mobility and productivity in their final years of study.

The agreement makes AUT the first Lenovo ‘ThinkPad University’ in New Zealand, one of just two such institutions in the Asia Pacific region. The scholarship will enable up to 70 students studying at Masters and PhD level to receive a new Lenovo ThinkPad notebook computer, business software and support.

“AUT recognises the academic and financial pressure faced by students, and looks forward to lightening the load for high-achieving post-graduate students,” says Liz Gosling, AUT Director of IT Services.

“Doctorate and Masters students need mobility and flexibility when studying. AUT has a strong commitment to ensuring our graduates hit the ground running when they leave AUT: that they are information-literate and can use technology effectively.”

“Senior students have the same mobility and technology needs as a business executive, but usually without the financial means to acquire it,” says Dean Butchers, Country General Manager for Lenovo New Zealand.

Students will be awarded the scholarships by AUT on the basis of excellent academic achievement and ongoing commitment to attaining a post-graduate qualification.

Applications open on 30 October 2007, giving students until 30 November 2007 to apply for the 2008 academic year scholarship programme.
