The Wairoa Veterinary Club was established in 1968 by local farmers to provide veterinary services to the Wairoa District.
As the Club became more financially secure in recent years a scholarship programme was developed to provide financial assistance to members and their children who enter tertiary studies in either veterinary science or agriculture.
Applicants must have been Wairoa Veterinary Club members for the last five years, or the children of members who have held membership for the last five year membership.
Applicants must be commencing tertiary studies in Veterinary Science, Veterinary Nursing or Agriculture.
Applicants studying Veterinary Science not meeting the above membership requirements, but a resident in the Wairoa District may be considered for a scholarship and should apply.
Applicants are able to apply for their first year of studies and each year after by submitting their previous year’s examination results.
Application and Selection Process
Applicants are required to apply in writing; stating their course of study; background information, Wairoa Veterinary Club membership; and previous academic results (secondary school and/or tertiary).
Application should be posted to;
Wairoa Veterinary Club Inc
PO Box 134
The deadline for applications is 31st January each year for the ensuing year.
Application will be reviewed in February by the Scholarship sub-committee with recommendation passed to the full council meeting in April for ratification. Applicants will receive notification after the April meeting.
Successful first year applicants will receive details of the amount of the awarded scholarship in April, however payment of the scholarship is dependent on the proof of successful full year examination results. These are to be forwarded to the Club Secretary at the completion of the academic year.
Successful second and subsequent year applicants will have their scholarships paid in April after the Council meeting.
