AMP General Manager Public Affairs, Jane Anderson says, .The Scholarship Programme is not so much about providing a monetary hand-out, more a handup, to support ordinary New Zealanders of all ages and backgrounds, in achieving extraordinary things. .

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.

AMP has a long history of supporting individuals and groups through its sponsorship programmes. 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.
