Jaycee Trust Travelling Fellowship Scheme seeks
The Palmerston North Jaycee Trust
would like to inform residents that applications will be
opening for the Jaycee Trust Travelling Fellowship Scheme
for the 2014 – 2015 year on 9 June 2014.
Scheme will enable two young people under the age of 40 to
undertake special projects of study beyond New Zealand.
The Scheme aims to provide opportunities for young
people who would not otherwise have the means to further
their study by travelling overseas.
administrator Priscilla Jeffrey says previous recipients
have used the Travelling Fellowship Award towards attending
“Recipients have used
the Award to undertake research with other specialists and
to undertake voluntary work in areas of interest enabling
them to further their knowledge base and skills.”
The two successful applicants will each receive funding
of up to $5,000 so they can apply themselves to a study
programme or engage in a special project. In turn the
funding will enable them to make a valuable contribution to
their trade, industry, profession or community.
Fellowship details can be found on pncc.govt.nz,
Applications close on 21 July 2014.
