THE SCHEME AIMS TO:

-Under-write funds and otherwise provide persons with avenues of participation whereby such qualities of leadership as are needed in all communities may be developed.
-Under-write, promote and pay for furnishing practical opportunities for the advancement of the ideals of fellowship and tolerance on a local, national and international basis.
-Educate members of the community generally in matters of civil, national and international importance.
-Applications will be made on the attached application form and it is likely applicants will be interviewed in the selection process. If you are shortlisted by the Seleciton Panel, you will be contacted regarding an allocated interview time which is likely to be on Friday, 22 September 2017. Interviews are an opportunity for you to meet members of the Selection Panel and state your application more fully. Your attendance at an interview allows the Selection Panel to learn more about your project and answer any questions they may have. It also allows applicants to promote the merits of their project and to seek input and advice from the Selection Panel.
-Applicants may include their application supporting letters from their teachers/tutors, mentors and other key individuals/organisations.
-The fellowship is intended to cover the all inclusive costs of travel which could not be met by the applicant, provided that applicants are expected to meet not less than twenty per cent of such total costs in each case.
-The project shall be completed within the year following approval of the travel fellowsihp and recipients must, on completion of the project, return to study or employment as the Selection Panel have approved.
-The Selection Panel may, in special circumstances, and in their discretion, grant more than eighty per cent assistance if an applicant can justify inability to meet the base criteria of a twenty per cent personal contribution.
-In certain circumstances, travelling fellowships may be approved for travel and study in some other part of NZ, without necessarily involving the recipient in overseas travel.
-All decisions of the Selection Panel are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
