Rocket Lab Scholarship Goes To Wairoa Student

Rocket Lab has been a big part of Mya Mataki-Wilson’s family since it first came to Mahia.

And while she embarks on her university studies, the company will continue to play an important part in her life through the 2018 Rocket Lab scholarship.

Now in its second year, the annual scholarship encourages students from Māhia and the wider Wairoa District in northern Hawke’s Bay to pursue tertiary study in science, technology and engineering disciplines.

The scholarship covers up to $20,000 of tertiary education fees for up to four years of study, and includes hands-on mentorship from Rocket Lab.
