Students apply for fund
South Waikato District Council has received 15 applications to the Mayoral Scholarship Fund for next year.
Human resources manager Murray McAlister is pleased with the number and the diversity in applicants. ‘‘We received six from students at Putaruru College, four from Forest View High School, three from Tokoroa High and one each from St Peters and Hamilton Girls’ High School.
‘‘The council would like to thank all students who put forward applications. It is encouraging to see that so many young people have ambitions to study further in such a diverse range of fields.’’
Applicants will now be shortlisted.
