Level of study
The Charles Elgar Scholarship supports postgraduate agricultural and horticultural students, preferably from Wairarapa.
This scholarship was established under the terms of the will of Ella Grace Elgar and is named for her husband, who farmed at Fernside near Featherston.
Value and tenure
The value of the scholarship is determined each year from the interest earned on the capital. The scholarship is usually offered annually and the tenure is for a single academic year.
At the discretion of the University all, or part, of the annual interest may be reinvested to maintain the value of the capital fund so the scholarship may not be granted each and every year.
Typical number on offer
One scholarship is typically offered each year.
Applicants must be:
•enrolled full time for a postgraduate degree or a postgraduate diploma in Applied Academic Programme disciplines relevant to agriculture or horticulture (prefix of 111, 112, 117, 119, 138, 171, 188, 189, 238, 239, 283 or 285) at Massey University
•domiciled in New Zealand.
The selection criterion is academic merit. Preference may be given to residents of Wairarapa.
The University Scholarships Committee may take account of other scholarships and bursaries held by the applicants in seeking an equitable distribution of funds.
The scholarship is awarded by the University Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of the Applied Academic Programmes Scholarships Committee.
The University Scholarships Committee has the right to refrain from making an award if there are no suitable applicants and its decision is final.
