Several of our past recipients have used the programme.s support as a launchingpad to success, so we.re really proud to be continuing this tradition. So far this year, we.ve received a good number of high quality applications for the AMP Scholarship Programme, which really demonstrates that there are a lot of inspirational Kiwis out there, who are showing a determination to live their life to the full . she says.

It recently demonstrated its commitment to supporting people in local communities nationwide through the AMP Foundation 2006 Programme, which will see grants of over $230,000 allocated to non-profit organisations.
