AMP Scholarship Applications Now Open

AMP Scholarship Applications Now Open

From Cape Reinga to the Bluff, the 14th annual AMP Scholarships is open today and offering Kiwis across the country the opportunity to do their thing in 2012.

AMP is passionate about providing Kiwis the chance to do their thing with an extra helping hand. The sky is the limit, and unlike other scholarships the only conditions are a willingness to succeed, determination and commitment to their chosen field.

Kiwis proud to demonstrate these values are being called to claim their stake in the $200,000+ AMP scholarship pool available this year.

Blair Vernon, AMP General Manager Marketing and Customer Sales, acknowledges that this is a time where the future of New Zealanders should be recognised and celebrated accordingly.

“Every Kiwi is fortunate enough to have opportunities at every corner. AMP Scholarships help hand over the key to unlock these dreams and desires. We want to help Kiwis achieve their goals and be proud of what they are capable of doing.”

Since AMP Scholarships begun in 1998, the programme has helped over 130 New Zealanders realise their dreams by investing more than $1.5 million to help ordinary Kiwis achieve extraordinary things.

AMP is ready for another rewarding year of identifying talent from the far corners of New Zealand and helping to celebrate it.

Applications are open from July 2 to August 31, 2012. Visit or for more information and to apply.
