P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A. Inc. (PACIFICA) scholarships for 2022 are now open. With an increase in the award amounts we hope to make more of a difference in the lives of the successful applicants. 


Scholarships' amounts for both 2021 and 2022 have been combined and given the challenges and the impact of the pandemic, these awards are currently available only to registered and financial members of PACIFICA Inc. 

As a national organisation, PACIFICA operates through three regions (Northern, Central and Southern) and so, in 2022, PACIFICA will support:


  • 1x  Member with a tertiary education grant of $3000.00

    • Northern region    $3000.00

    • Central region        $3000.00

    • Southern region    $3000.00


  • 1x Secondary school student Member with a grant of $1000.00

    • Northern region    $1000.00

    • Central region       $1000.00

    • Southern region    $1000.00

This grant is available to a Year 12 student, who will complete their year 13 in 2023.

Please note: Scholarships are also open to members currently studying under some form of study visa who are not permanent residents or NZ citizens and are ordinarily resident in NZ due to their study.

#PACIFICA’s network of branches throughout the Northern, Central and Southern regions of New Zealand are shown here.



Since 2002, PACIFICA branches have been fundraising to build an education fund for the provision of scholarship grants to assist our women and secondary students with their studies.
