The late Hugh MacDiarmid was a veterinarian who dedicated his life to treating and caring for animals. In 2013 Hugh’s sister established the Hugh MacDiarmid Memorial Bursary Fund in memory of her brother. The fund is invested in perpetuity by the Massey University Foundation ensuring future students will continue to benefit from the Hugh MacDiarmid Memorial Bursaries.
The purpose of the Hugh MacDiarmid Memorial Bursaries is to financially support two New Zealand-born Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc) students who are suffering from financial hardship. The bursaries are awarded in the final year of study at Massey University.
