Level of study
The Allan Gibson Accountancy Scholarship encourages students wishing to become chartered accountants, and with an interest in rural, agricultural and/or agrifood industries, to complete their accountancy qualification through Massey University.
This scholarship was established by Allan R. Gibson in 1980 to provide assistance to deserving accountancy students. Mr Gibson was a Palmerston North chartered accountant who wished to recognise “the extremely valuable contribution Massey University is making towards the development of the accountancy profession in New Zealand”.
Value and tenure
The annual value of the scholarship is $1000. The scholarship is tenable for one year.
Typical number on offer
Two scholarships may be awarded annually.
Applicants must be:
* in their second or third year of study towards an accountancy qualification at Massey University
* New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.
The selection criteria are:
*the applicant’s stated interest in and contribution to rural, agricultural and/or agrifood industries on completion of studies and
*the applicant’s statement of how the scholarship will add to their prospects of successful completion of their qualification.
Consideration is given to students who may be experiencing hardship while studying.
The scholarship is awarded by the University Scholarships Committee on the recommendation of a selection panel consisting of the Head of School of Accountancy and an academic member of the School of Accountancy.
The University Scholarships Committee has the right to refrain from making an award if there are no suitable applicants and its decision is final.

The scholarship may be held in conjunction with other scholarships, bursaries or awards, so long as those scholarships, bursaries or awards permit co-tenure.
