ABOUT THE TRUST
The Waimate Agricultural Trust was established in 2013 from funds provided by The Waimate Farmers Veterinary Club which was then dissolved. Members of the club wished the club’s funds to be retained within the area previously serviced by the club and that they are used for the benefit of agricultural students.

OBJECT OF THE TRUST
The object of the trust is to assist students of any form of agriculture for the purpose of their education by any polytechnic, university or other recognised formal training institution.

MANAGEMENT OF THE TRUST
The trust is managed by a Board of Trustees which has complete and uncontrolled discretion in regard to the granting of funds and all other matters in regard to eligibility, residence etc. The guidelines for eligibility for funding are broad but the trustees will scrutinise applications in detail before a decision is reached.
