Horticulture New Zealand (HortNZ) and the Horticentre Trust has a number of scholarships available for undergraduate students studying towards a degree in areas of interest to the Horticulture Industry.
Scholarship packages are valued at $4500 and are comprised of the following:
-$1500 awarded after the Selection Teams’ initial decision;
-Complimentary attendance at the Horticulture Conference (costs covered include registration fees, meals, accommodation and travel); and
-$1500 awarded on successful completion of the years study.
Applications are reviewed by a panel in April with the selection decision advised in May. The Selection Team will be looking for:
-Potential contribution to the industry;
-Individual approach, qualities and skills; and
Selected applicants will need to submit two one page progress reports, one in the middle of the year and one at the end of year. The second instalment of funds is distributed once grades are confirmed, so the payment will be made early in the following year. The decisions of the Selection Team will be final.
