    The AMP Scholarship Programme is a unique scheme in that there is no limit on applicants’ activities or age. It is open to Kiwis of all ages and backgrounds who can demonstrate the ability and attitude to succeed in their chosen field. The only criteria is that applicants must be either permanent residents or NZ citizens.

    Filmmaker and 2006 AMP Scholarship winner Qiujing Wong sees this broad criteria as refreshing, and says, “New Zealand has a tremendous pool of talent that is somewhat untapped. I love that AMP defines our dreams as limitless in genre, age, sex and scope”.

    Applications are now being accepted online for the 2007 AMP Scholarship Programme at www.amp.co.nz, and will close 30 June 2007. All AMP Scholarship winners will be announced in late August 2007.

    Any AMP Scholarship Programme queries can be emailed to ampscholarships@amp.co.nz and full details about the Programme are available on the AMP New Zealand website www.amp.co.nz.
