There’s another great opportunity coming up for students from the Waihou-Piako rivers zone to get a tertiary studies scholarship worth up to $6000.
Waikato Regional Council’s Roger Harris Scholarship for 2017 is available to those intending to study or already studying civil engineering or resource management, with a particular focus on river and catchment management.
Last year’s scholarship was awarded to Morrinsville student Eleanor van Bysterveldt and was presented at the Waihou Piako catchment committee meeting.
Eleanor, who completed her secondary education at Hauraki Plains College, is in her first year at Auckland University studying towards a Bachelor of Civil Engineering.
The scholarship is dedicated to helping students whose families live in the council’s Waihou-Piako rating zone.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae including qualifications, copies of NCEA results and information on extracurricular activities, and information that demonstrates their skills and attributes.
Applications, which close on December 9 and should be sent to: The Chief Executive Officer, Waikato Regional Council, Private Bag 3038, Waikato Mail Centre. For more information, contact Karen Botting on (07) 862 8376 or 0800 800 401.
