Dear Albert,  
Please find the following answers to your Official Information Act request of 27 January 2020 
regarding undergraduate entrance scholarships awarded by the University of Otago at the end of 
The number of Academic Excellence, New Frontiers, and Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarships awarded 
at the end of 2019.  
The number of undergraduate entrance scholarships the University of Otago awards is commercially 
sensitive.  We therefore withhold this information pursuant to section 9(2)(b)(ii) of the Act.  Please 
note, you have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision. 
However, the University can confirm that of the undergraduate entrance scholarships awarded for 
2020, approximately 45% were University of Otago New Frontiers Entrance Scholarships, 40% were 
University of Otago Leaders of Tomorrow Entrance Scholarships, and 15% were University of Otago 
Academic Excellence Entrance Scholarships.  Please note, that these percentages were accurate at 
mid-February but may be subject to change as students defer or decline scholarship offers. 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.  
Yours sincerely, 
Claire Gallop 
Manager, Policy and Compliance, Office of the Registrar
