Level of study
The George Terry Memorial Scholarship supports agriculture and horticulture students in the first year of their master’s or postgraduate diploma programme.
This scholarship is supported by a gift from F. Terry of Ngongotaha in memory of his son, George Harold Terry. George was a graduate of Massey Agricultural College who was killed in action in Italy in 1944. While in Italy, George wrote to his father expressing the wish that if he did not return, a portion of his estate should be used to establish a scholarship for Massey students.
Value and tenure
The value of the scholarship is determined each year from the interest earned on the capital. The scholarship is offered as funds permit and the tenure is for a single academic year.
