Se­nior sec­ondary and ter­tiary level stu­dents can ap­ply for a three­year schol­ar­ship from Bayer New Zealand and the Royal So­ci­ety of New Zealand.

The Bayer­Boost en­vi­ron­men­tal schol­ar­ship scheme pro­vides fi­nan­cial help to stu­dents to un­der­take en­vi­ron­men­tal re­search projects dur­ing their sum­mer break.

Six schol­ar­ships of be­tween $3000 and $6000 were awarded in 2007 and Bayer New Zealand is now call­ing for stu­dents to ap­ply for re­search sup­port dur­ing the 2008 to 2009 sum­mer break.

As well as fund­ing, schol­ar­ship win­ners will re­ceive guid­ance from a host or­gan­i­sa­tion to carry out their en­vi­ron­men­tal study.

To be el­i­gi­ble, stu­dents must be un­der the age of 24, en­rolled in a New Zealand se­nior sec­ondary school or un­der­grad­u­ate ter­tiary pro­gramme and study­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­ences or re­lated ar­eas.
