Calling for Applications for $7,500 Agricultural Scholarship


Whangarei A&P Society’s annual Agricultural Scholarship is now open. With $7,500 available to assist students with study costs, over a three year period, students choosing to study agriculture (or related studies) next year should be applying for scholarship funding now.

Last years’ winner, Aidan Hawker from Kamo, who is now half way through his first year at Lincoln University, advised that not only was the scholarship money very helpful, but the application process was uncomplicated.

“Applying for the scholarship is straightforward and the interview process was a valuable experience. I would encourage students preparing for tertiary study next year to take the time to apply for this valuable scholarship,” Mr Hawker said.

“University life is very different from secondary school and it is great not having as much financial pressure as a result of winning this scholarship. I really appreciate Whangarei Agricultural & Pastoral Society’s assistance,” he said.

Application forms are available by telephoning the Whangarei Agricultural & Pastoral Society on (09) 438 3109, calling at the office at 127 Bank Street, Whangarei or they can be downloaded from www.whangareiap.org.nz .

The scholarship is open to students who are contemplating or who are already participating in agricultural based studies. Students who live within the boundaries of the Northland Regional Council area are eligible to apply. Entries close on 30 September, after which entrants may be short listed then invited to attend a short interview. The successful candidate will receive their first payment of $2,500.00 when they are accepted by the agricultural institution of their choice.

Whangarei A&P Society has been providing the agricultural scholarship as a demonstration of its commitment to providing a link between town and country to further agricultural interests.
