Our community - unsung hero charities, ICT Connect, Potentia Computer Science Scholars

One of our core values is making a difference and one way to do this is through our community.

We are committed to contributing back to our broader community through our Unsung Heroes donation, Undergraduate Scholarship Sponsorship and by helping to inspire today's youth about careers in Technology through ICT Connect.

Potentia Undergraduate Scholarship in Computer Science

As well as the ICT Connect programme we want to help students working towards their degree in Computer Science. In 2013, we worked with the University of Auckland to establish an Undergraduate Scholarship in Computer Science. The main purpose of the Scholarship is the provide assistance to a Bachelor of Science student who has shown an interest in software development.

Unsung Heroes Charity Grant

Over the years, we have run an annual 'Unsung Heroes' charity vote, where we nominate less celebrated charities to be shortlisted for a public vote. The charity with the largest amount of votes is then offered a donation by Potentia.

This year we were delighted to announce De Paul House as the recipients of the $10,000 Unsung Heroes grant. Read more about De Paul House as the 2014 Unsung Hero.

In 2013, the recipient of a $10,000 donation was Paw Justice.
