Over $3.5 million a year to grow Primary Industries talents

GrowingNZ’s new online directory presents more than 150 types of scholarship offered by a wide range of organisations. These are targeted at secondary-level students to help them in their next step, or to students on tertiary courses. The common factor is that all these scholarships are for young people with an interest in helping take quality food and fibre to the world, or working with water, land, plants or animals. The scholarships focus on different personal strengths or subject areas, so every young person should have a look to see what could be there for them.

The scholarships directory is on the GrowingNZ website www.growingnz.org.nz
