Helping Kiwis Realise Their Dreams

Helping Kiwis Realise Their Dreams – AMP 2017 Scholarship Applications Now Open

Farmers, athletes, artists, scientists, or entrepreneurs… whoever you are and whatever you want to do, AMP can help you reach your dreams. Kiwis from all walks of life have achieved great things and they all started with a dream and can-do attitude.

This year, AMP is giving away up to $200,000 to help talented New Zealanders of all ages and from all walks of life who have the courage to pursue their dreams with the help of AMP Scholarships.

Whether the dream is a new business, launching a community-focused project, providing educational opportunities, representing New Zealand at the Olympics – the search has begun around the country for talented and determined Kiwis.

AMP Financial Services Managing Director Blair Vernon says Kiwis are some of the most extraordinary people in the world, with the aspirations, vision and courage to take a small idea and turn it into something profound.

“AMP has been inspired by these dreams and has so far given over $2 million to more than 200 dreamers. We continue to be motivated by the desire to help foster greatness in everyday Kiwis who have a dream and the ambition and commitment to follow it through.

“AMP Scholarships is the only programme of its kind in New Zealand and we’re very proud of the support we’re able to provide to help ordinary Kiwis achieve extraordinary things – from encouraging senior citizens to rediscover their passions, supporting researchers to find ways to improve people’s lives, getting behind athletes who want to test their limits against the best in the world, or giving performing artists the chance to share their gift on an international stage.

“We encourage anyone with a dream, small or big, to have the courage to take the next step in their journey by applying for an AMP Scholarship today.”

Applications are open until 13 August 2017.
